How is Zika transmitted?

Zika is primarily transmitted through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, the same mosquitoes that spread Chikungunya and dengue. These mosquitoes are aggressive daytime biters and they can also bite at night.

The Zika Virus is now believed to also be spread sexually. There is not much known yet about the sexual transmission of the virus, so anyone who has travelled to a high risk/infected area, is strongly advised to wear condoms 100% of the time with ALL sexual contact to avoid spreading this virus to others.
