The Zika virus, a mosquito-borne infection is linked to birth defects in Brazil, has made its way to the United States and other areas across the world. How much attention should we pay to the Zika virus? It’s worth paying attention to, say health officials, who note the infection can be brought into countries by travelers. Though it is thought that Zika virus is not spread person-to-person, the concern is that mosquitos here or anywhere can feed on travelers and potentially bite and transmit the Zika virus to others.
Millions of dollars are being spent on studying the Zika virus and it may take years to fully understand it. It is thought that people who become infected carry the Zika virus for about 14 days after developing symptoms. That’s why state and federal health officials are stressing the importance of preventing mosquito bites, dumping or eliminating standing water and taking every precaution to eliminate the potential for acquiring the Zika virus.
Mosquitos in the Aides species are thought to be the most likely to transmit the Zika virus. These are the same mosquitos that spread dengue and chikungunya viruses. “These mosquitos are resourceful at breeding in containers, puddles, gutters, anything where water collects. And they have a short flight range, so they tend to stay around structures, homes, buildings and people,” says Jim Fredericks, Chief Entomologist and Vice President of the National Pest Management Association. While most mosquitos are active at dawn and dusk, the Aides mosquitos are different. “These are very aggressive daytime biters,” Fredericks said. “They can live indoors and outdoors, but need to be near people to feed.”
“It’s a difficult disease to identify because the symptoms are somewhat vague and flu-like,” said Dr. Carina Blackmore, Deputy State Entomologist for the Department of Health. “So we may have cases that we don’t detect or confirm. The State is working on educational materials for community physicians and public health officials so we can better identify cases.”
