Zika Virus Information
Posted on April 20, 2016
Zika virus is spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. This mosquito species is not present in Connecticut and related species are not likely to spread the disease in Connecticut.
The Aedes species mosquito is found throughout tropical regions of the world and are the same mosquitoes that spread dengue and chikungunya viruses. Mosquitoes become infected with the Zika virus when they bite a person already infected with the virus. Infected mosquitoes can then spread the virus to other people through bites.
