The recent upsurge of Zika virus infection has alarmed public health officials because of its possible association with thousands of suspected cases of microcephaly, thereby sparking a public health emergency. This mosquito-borne arboviral disease majorly remains asymptomatic. Unavailability of specific prophylaxis or vaccines or treatment necessitates the need to advocate preventive personal measures to get protected from these daytime bitters. Prevention and control measures should be aimed at reducing the vector density and minimizing the vector-patient contact.
