After its first discovery in Africa in 1947, Zika seemed like a very localized infection. However, over the last couple of decades Zika has spread around the globe, and been found to cause serious developmental defects in fetuses. Zika can be transmitted by particular types of mosquitos, which are present in the San Diego region, and by sex. However, so far we havenít seen transmission of Zika in our region. A panel discusses what Zika is, why we are so concerned about Zika, what we are doing to prevent Zika in humans, and whether Zika is a likely threat to people in the San Diego region.
