Scientists have known about the Zika virus for seven decades, but human infection has only been a serious public-health concern in recent yearsespecially amid outbreaks that have taught researchers more about emerging, mutated strains of the virus.

.

There is still much that we dont understand about Zika, but we do know its a catastrophic threat to global public healtheven despite the fact that the majority of those who are infected never experience telltale symptoms such as fever, rash, joint pain, red eyes, and muscle aches. This makes it particularly hard to test forZika only shows up in a persons bloodstream about one week after infection, so theres a fairly small window of time in which a Zika diagnosis can be confirmed through a blood or urine sample.

.

Zika is of particular concern to pregnant women, whose fetuses can suffer grave outcomes when a woman contracts the virus. Yet the virus can be seriousand in rare cases, deadlyfor children and adults, too.

.

What We Know

.

Zika primarily spreads through infected mosquitoes. The main carrier of the virus is the Aedes aegypti mosquito. (The more geographically disperse Aedes albopictus can also, more rarely, spread the disease.)

.

You can also get Zika through sex, including vaginal sex, anal sex, oral sex, and the sharing of sex toys, according to the CDC:
