​This seventh update assesses the risks associated with the Zika virus epidemic currently affecting countries in the Americas, taking account the latest information available. It provides updated information for those travelling to and returning from affected countries and for EU citizens residing in areas with active transmission. It reviews available information on the association between Zika virus infection and congenital central nervous system malformations, including microcephaly, as well as the association between Zika virus infection and Guillain–Barré syndrome. It also assesses the risk of local vector-borne transmission in Europe during the 2016 summer season and proposes a range of mitigation measures for EU/EEA Member States to consider.
