What are the symptoms of Zika infection?
About four out of five people infected with Zika virus don’t experience any symptoms. For people who develop illness, the most common symptoms are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika virus infection.
