Zika Virus - Case Counts in the US as of March 8 2017

___

Language: [ English | Español | Português ]

___

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 webpage contains provisional data reported to ArboNET for January 1, 2015 – March 8, 2017.  

 

US States

  • 5,109 Zika virus disease cases reported
    • 4,813 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
    • 221 cases acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission in Florida (N=215) and Texas (N=6)
    • 75 cases acquired through other routes, including sexual transmission (N=45), congenital infection (N=28), laboratory transmission (N=1), and person-to-person through an unknown route (N=1)

US Territories

  • 38,099 Zika virus disease cases reported
    • 147 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
    • 37,952 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.

___

{**} Includes reported confirmed and probable Zika virus disease cases per the CSTE case definitions.

{†} Presumptive viremic blood donors are people who reported no symptoms at the time of donating blood, but whose blood tested positive when screened for the presence of Zika virus RNA by the blood collection agency. Some presumptive viremic blood donors develop symptoms after their donation or may have had symptoms in the past.  These individuals may be reported as both Zika virus disease cases and presumptive viremic blood donors.

{‡} Includes 215 cases in Florida and 6 cases in Texas that were acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission.
