Abstract: Objective: to describe the temporal and geographical expansion of Zika virus (ZIKV) circulation in countries and territories, from the time it was first isolated until 2018. Methods: This was a non-systematic literature review covering the period from 1947 to 2018 using the MEDLINE database and World Health Organization estimates. Results: Since its isolation in 1947, ZIKV circulation spread through Africa, Asia and the Pacific before reaching the Americas in 2013, causing serious clinical manifestations; the … Show more

“…Zika virus (ZIKV), an emerging mosquito-borne virus, belongs to the genus Flavivirus within the family Flaviviridae. ZIKV was first identified from a sentinel rhesus monkey in Uganda in 1947 [1], and the first human infection was then described in this country in 1951 [2]. Since then, only sporadic cases of ZIKV were reported among Asian and African countries until the first epidemic occurred in 2007 in Micronesia, during which all reported cases were asymptomatic or manifested mild symptoms [3,4].…”

“…Since then, only sporadic cases of ZIKV were reported among Asian and African countries until the first epidemic occurred in 2007 in Micronesia, during which all reported cases were asymptomatic or manifested mild symptoms [3,4]. The first large outbreak of ZIKV spread throughout the Pacific Ocean areas to American countries in 2013-2014, affecting approximately 30,000 people, and was shown to be associated with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a severe neurological manifestation [2,5,6]. ZIKV infection was previously considered benign before recent retrospective studies and current outbreaks revealed strong causal associations with microcephaly in fetuses and newborns and other neurological disorders, attracting global attention.…”

“…A preocupação a respeito da gravidade das consequências da infecção pelo vírus Zika levou o Ministério da Saúde a declarar a conjuntura como uma Emergência em Saúde Pública de Importância Nacional (BRASIL, 2015). Alguns meses depois, a Organização Mundial da Saúde decretou a situação como uma emergência global (SAMPAIO et al, 2019). Em novembro de 2016, a Chamada Pública selecionou 69 projetos de pesquisa científica para apoio financeiro que buscavam contribuir significativamente para o desenvolvimento científico, tecnológico e de inovação do País, com foco especial na prevenção, diagnóstico e tratamento de infecção pelo vírus Zika, e doenças correlacionadas, e no combate ao mosquito Aedes aegypti.…”

“…After an outbreak in 2007 on the western Pacific island of Yap [3], a major ZIKV epidemic was reported in French Polynesia, South Pacific, in 2013 and 2014 [4]. In 2015, the first cases of ZIKV were recorded in Brazil [5,6], and an explosive epidemic was subsequently recorded in the Americas [7]. The rapid geographical spread and the association of ZIKV infection with cases of microcephaly [8,9] and the Guillain-Barré syndrome [10,11] caused ZIKV to be declared as public health emergency in 2016, one of the most notorious infectious diseases of the decade.…”
