THE ZIKA VIRUS IS SCARY because it targets the most vulnerable among us — its sudden, rapid spread across the Americas would not have been recognized by the general public had it not been linked to birth defects like microcephaly in unborn babies.
Because of this horrific side effect to the otherwise fairly mild virus, travelers have good reason to be concerned when they travel. But a lot of the panic has been unnecessary, and often, the true risk of Zika has been overstated. To try and fight panic and inform travelers, we’ve created this resource page to try and break everything down for you.
