Zika virus is a disease that is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week after being bitten by an infected mosquito. People usually don’t get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika. For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected.

http://www.cdc.gov/zika/ gives a detailed analysis and up to date information on the developments of the disease and tips on how to avoid contracting it.
