National Zika Pregnancy Registry

Texas has reported 142 individuals into the CDC’s Zika Pregnancy Registry. The registry includes pregnant women and infants with laboratory evidence of Zika infection, whether or not they ever had symptoms. Texas provides data to the Zika Pregnancy Registry weekly.

The registry casts a wider net – beyond reported Zika cases – to track and follow pregnancies that may have been impacted by Zika. States are reporting cases but also the number of pregnancies that can’t be confirmed to be Zika-infected but have some lab indication of a flavivirus infection. Flaviviruses are known to cross-react during antibody testing, making it difficult to determine if the person was infected with Zika or some other flavivirus.
