Symptoms of Zika Virus include:
- Slight fever
- Conjunctivitis (red eyes)
- Muscle and joint pain
People with Zika virus can experience these symptoms.
People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital and may not realise they have been infected. Actually, only 1 in 4 people can experience some symptoms.
If you show symptoms or are diagnosed with Zika, help prevent others in your family from getting sick by avoiding mosquito bites.
