Seenu Susan Sunny*, Elizabeth Philip, Arya S., Jiju V. and Elessy Abraham
Zika virus is an emerging mosquito-borne arbovirus that was first isolated from a rhesus monkey in Uganda in 1947, and caused sporadic human infections in some African and Asian countries, with usually mild symptoms of ever, rash, and arthralgia. A causal link between Zika virus in the mother and microcephaly in the newborn baby has yet to be firmly established, but is a worrying possibility.
Keywords: Zika virus, Chikungunyna.
