Confirmed Zika Case in Yolo County

Confirmed Zika Case in Yolo County

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed today that a Yolo County resident has tested positive for Zika virus.  This individual recently traveled out of the country and had a mild case of Zika.

Zika virus is a relatively new disease for the Western hemisphere.  It first appeared in Brazil in May of 2015.  It has since spread to 20 countries in Central and South America and the Caribbean, including Mexico.  Zika is spread through mosquito bites, not casual person-to-person contact.  According to the CDC, the most common symptoms are fever, rash, joint pain and red, itchy eyes.  Symptoms are usually mild and last several days to a week.  Many people who have Zika will not experience symptoms.  There is currently no vaccine or treatment for Zika.
