Hi there,
Zika virus infection is typically asymptomatic but can cause fever, rash, joint pain, or conjunctivitis; Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause microcephaly (a serious birth defect) and eye abnormalities.

Symptoms last 4 to 7 days. Most infections are mild. Severe infection requiring hospitalization is uncommon. Death due to Zika virus infection is rare.
