Zika virus is transmitted mainly through infected Aedes species mosquitoes. However, there are some other ways to acquire the infection including:
- Mother to child: Zika virus can be transmitted to the fetus during the pregnancy or around the time of birth.
- Sexual contact: Zika virus can be transmitted by man to his sex partners.
- Blood transfusion: Zika virus can be detected in blood while the patient is asymptomatic. Those patients can potentially donate blood. There are some cases reported.
