Zika infection is caused by Zika virus (ZIKV) transmitted by the bite of an infected Aedes mosquito. The disease can be asymptomatic, but in those that do experience symptoms, ZIKV infection causes fever, rash, headaches, muscle and joint pains and conjunctivitis. Outbreaks have occurred in many countries of the world, including the Pacific islands. In 2015, the first case of ZIKV infection to occur in Brazil was reported.
