​A Zika virus outbreak in the Americas and the South Pacific is evolving rapidly, and its spread is likely to continue as the vector species Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are widely distributed there.

This is the fourth ECDC rapid risk assessment on Zika virus; the first one was published in February 2014.
