Zika virus infection: guidance for primary care
Public Health England
Individuals infected with active Zika virus usually present with a mild illness lasting two to seven days. Symptoms include a combination of fever, joint pain, rash, conjunctivitis/red eyes, headache, muscle pain, and eye pain. Zika virus infection during pregnancy may be associated with foetal microcephaly and other central nervous system abnormalities. Zika virus infection has also been linked with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
