Is Zika Still Spreading?

The World Health Organization lifted the “public health emergency of international concern” designation for Zika last November. But that status change did not mark the outbreak's end. Between then and January, some 4,000 new cases were reported in just the U.S. and its territories.

Contracting the Zika virus during pregnancy can lead to birth defects such as damage to the brain and microcephaly. Pregnant women are encouraged to avoid travel to areas with Zika and advised to talk to their healthcare provider before traveling to understand the risks if in the event they do need to travel to a Zika area.
