Abstract

It is a critical arthropod-borne disease transmitted the Zika virus and spreads globally in various regions including Asia, Africa, America and the Pacific region. The mosquito is the main vector of the virus to humans. Both the incubation period and the period of short infection, the disease can be treated according to the symptoms associated with the disease, the reason is no specific treatment and difficult to prevent and control, many scientists are currently seeking to produce an effective vaccine against the virus. Therefore, relevant efforts should be combined to avoid possible neurological complications that arise after exposure to the virus, including Guillain-Barre syndrome in adults and cases of microcephaly in newborns.
