Zika virus in bloodstream. Computer illustration of zika virus particles (round) amongst red blood cells (erythrocytes, discs) in a blood vessel. Zika is an RNA (ribonucleic acid) virus from the Flaviviridae family. It is transmitted to humans via the bite of an infected Aedes sp. mosquito. It causes zika fever, a mild disease with symptoms including rash and joint pain. In 2015 a previously unknown connection between Zika infection in pregnant women and microcephaly (small head) in newborns was reported. This condition can cause miscarriage or death soon after birth, or lead to developmental delays and disorders.
