What is the Zika Virus?
The Zika virus is an arthropod-borne virus that is spread through a bite of an infected mosquito. This virus comes mostly from yellow fever mosquitoes that are found in tropical climates, including southern United States. The Zika virus is more of a danger to pregnant women because if you get the Zika virus while you are pregnant then it can cause birth defects. One major birth defect is very small heads.
