Zika virus is primarily spread by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Sexual and maternal-fetal transmission have also been well described. Transmission via transfusion of blood products has been reported in Brazil, but to date, transmission of Zika virus via blood transfusion has not been reported in the United States. There is currently no clinical evidence that Zika virus is transmitted through the air.
