The virus was first identified in 1947, in a rhesus monkey at Uganda’s Forest called Zika.
Zika is mosquitoes borne virus, which is spreading explosively in Americas with high intensity. Different report shows that 80% of those who are infected with the Zika virus don't even feel sick, and most who do have relatively mild symptoms such as a rash, fever, joint pain or pink eye. But there are many major worries about the dangers pregnant women and their babies face.
Guillain-Barre syndrome is a rare autoimmune disorder that can lead to life-threatening paralysis when infected by zika virus. Zika was most often found along the equator from Africa into Asia. Brazil has reported more than 4,000 cases of microcephaly -- a neurological disorder resulting in the births of babies with small heads -- in infants born to women infected with Zika while pregnant.
About one in five people infected with the virus become ill. Zika virus usually remains in the blood of an infected person for about a week
