Are you planning to head south for some rest and relaxation? The Zika virus is spreading throughout some travel destinations, including South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
This virus is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito, the same mosquito that carries chikungunya and dengue fever. Symptoms can include fever, headache, conjunctivitis (pink eye) and rash, along with joint and muscle pain. The illness is generally mild and lasts only a few days.
