On January 22, 2016, CDC activated its Incident Management System and, working through the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), centralized its response to the outbreaks of Zika occurring in the Americas and increased reports of birth defects and Guillain-Barré syndrome in areas affected by Zika. On February 1, 2016, the World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) because of clusters of microcephaly and other neurological disorders in some areas affected by Zika. On February 8, 2016, CDC elevated its response efforts to a Level 1 activation, the highest response level at the agency.

CDC is working with international public health partners and with state and local health departments to

Alert healthcare providers and the public about Zika.

Post travel notices and other travel-related guidance.

Provide state health laboratories with diagnostic tests.

Monitor and report cases of Zika, which will helps improve our understanding of how and where Zika is spreading.

Areas with active mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus

Prior to 2015, Zika virus outbreaks occurred in areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

In May 2015, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) issued an alert regarding the first confirmed Zika virus infections in Brazil.

Currently, outbreaks are occurring in many countries.

Zika virus will continue to spread and it will be difficult to determine how and where the virus will spread over time.

US States

No local mosquito-borne Zika virus disease cases have been reported in US states, but there have been travel-associated cases.

With the recent outbreaks, the number of Zika cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States will likely increase.

80% of cases will not be diagnosed.

These imported cases could result in local spread of the virus in some areas of the United States.

Well, we were warned with hundreds of movies about mad scientists and evil psychopaths that want to rule the world. Zee ka ka is round 2 on top of the already existing West Nile. Didja see the season finale of X Files? A virus linked to the small pox vaccine that 90% of the peeps have been injected with since the 60s. Wait until they pull the trigger on that one!! It's been kinda slow with crap food and chemtrails but they are growing impatient for their paradise without useless eaters.
