Zika Introduction

"Zika virus is a microorganism that causes an illness linked to serious birth defects in humans. The virus was named after the Zika Forest near Lake Victoria in Uganda, where scientists first discovered it in 1947. Since its discovery, the Zika virus has spread slowly from Africa to Asia and to several islands in the Pacific Ocean." (World, Book, 2017).
