Zika virus disease usually causes mild illness, and most people will not develop any symptoms. The most common symptoms of Zika include low fever or rash, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, appearing a few days after a person has been infected by an infected mosquito or after sexual intercourse with an infected person.
