We are delighted to be able to offer Zika Virus testing to patients both male and female if the travel history and/or symptoms raise concerns.
Zika Virus is transmitted primarily through mosquitos. In most cases, Zika virus infection causes a mild, self-limited illness. Symptoms last for up to one week after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Time from exposure to symptoms is 3-12 days. Around 80% of Zika virus infection cases are likely to go unnoticed. Symptoms of rash, muscle and joint pain, and conjunctivitis typically predominate and usually occur within 2 weeks after travel to a Zika virus affected area. The incubation period is typically between 2 and 7 days.
