|Zika virus infection
Zika virus infection is transmitted to people by mosquitoes carrying the virus and, rarely, by sexual transmission. Infection during pregnancy may cause serious birth defects in the baby. Pregnant women should defer to travel to Zika-affected countries (Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, and many more). Travellers should take measures to avoid mosquito bites to prevent infection, including insect repellent.
