Epidemiological update: Outbreaks of Zika virus and complications potentially linked to the Zika virus infection

17 Jun 2016
 

New developments since the last epidemiological update

In the week to 8 June 2016, Indonesia reported an autochthonous Zika virus infection.
 
WHO published an updated interim guidance regarding the prevention of sexual transmission of Zika virus, adverse pregnancy and foetal outcomes. According to a WHO statement, country health programmes should ensure that ‘men and women of reproductive age, living in areas where local transmission of Zika virus is known to occur, are correctly informed and oriented to consider delaying pregnancy’.
