Areas with Zika – Data

Zika virus disease is now a nationally notifiable condition. Cases are reported to CDC by state, territorial, and local health departments using standard case definitions. This web page contains provisional data reported to ArboNET for January 1, 2015 – February 15, 2017.

 

US States

  • 5,040 Zika virus disease cases reported
  • 4,748 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
  • 220 cases acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission in Florida (N=214) and Texas (N=6)
  • 72 cases acquired through other routes, including sexual transmission (N=44), congenital infection (N=26), laboratory transmission (N=1), and person-to-person through an unknown route (N=1)

US Territories

  • 37,023 Zika virus disease cases reported
  • 141 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
  • 36,882 cases acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission
  • 0 cases acquired through other routes*
  • *Sexually transmitted cases are not reported for US territories because with local transmission of Zika virus it is not possible to determine whether infection occurred due to mosquito-borne or sexual transmission.

    Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes are aggressive daytime biters; however, they can also bite at night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects. The mosquitoes that can carry the Zika virus are found in some areas of the United States; however, Zika is not currently being spread by mosquitoes in the continental United States. There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika.
