The Zika Virus has caused concern this past year as a recently-discovered mosquito borne illness. It is spread when a victim is bitten by a carrier mosquito. Most people with Zika Virus show only mild symptoms, like fever and joint pain. Zika is a more of a concern for pregnant women because it can be passed from a mother to her child if she is infected. This can cause birth defects, nervous system disorders, and can impair development.
