Footnotes

{*} Data are provisional and might not reflect the actual number of Zika virus disease cases due to delays in reporting.

{†} Excludes congenital disease cases. Data reported to the US Zika Pregnancy Registry for outcomes of pregnancies with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection in the United States is available at https://www.cdc.gov/pregnancy/zika/data/pregnancy-outcomes.html(https://www.cdc.gov/pregnancy/zika/data/pregnancy-outcomes.html).

{‡} 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.
