If you are pregnant of thinking of becoming pregnant, then you should be concerned. Otherwise, this is a mild illness. I had West Nile Virus several years ago. Just made me feel like I had the flu for a week or so. Zika is like West Nile Virus.
Excellent answer. From what I've read is this is primarily a concern for pregnant women. The illness itself is not severe. An estimated 80% of carries don't even show symptoms. But, Zika virus will be a big story this summer, as it spreads.
I think you will be hearing more about Zika as the weather warms up in the spring and summer. Be careful. If it's like West Nile Virus, then the effects will be minor. Also, you need to have several bites to contract West Nile . Zika, unsure?
