Zika Virus Information

Zika is a virus spread to people primarily through the bite of an Aedes mosquito; these mosquitoes most frequently bite in the daytime but can also bite at night. According to the CDC, there have been no reported cases of Zika virus disease transmission in Ohio or anywhere else in the continental United States at this time. However, cases have been reported in travelers returning to the United States, and recently in the U.S. there has been a case of Zika being sexually transmitted. Even though there are no recorded cases in Ohio, the Aedes mosquito that can hold the virus does live here in our state. - Haley White, Intern at the Perry County Ohio Health Department
