Zika Virus UPSC NOTE


  • Zika virus is a mosquito-borne virus that can cause birth defects in babies. 

  • It is transmitted to people through the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. 

  • Aedes mosquitoes are the same mosquitoes that transmit dengue, chikungunya, and yellow fever.

  • Zika virus infection is most dangerous for pregnant women. 

  • Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause a birth defect called microcephaly, which is characterized by a small head and brain. 

  • Zika infection can also cause other birth defects, such as miscarriage, stillbirth, and eye defects.

  • Most people infected with Zika virus do not develop any symptoms. 

  • Symptoms usually appear 3-14 days after the mosquito bite and last for 2-7 days.

  • There is no vaccine or specific treatment for Zika virus infection. 

  • Treatment is supportive and includes rest, fluids, and over-the-counter medications to relieve fever and pain.
