“…A proposal for surveillance at that point, if diagnostics are limited, is to develop a definition of a clinical confirmed case. As occurred with chikungunya, and Zika, in most countries in Latin America, this would be "a patient with fever, cough and other respiratory symptoms, not explained by other etiological agents or causes, that is diagnosed in a municipality where at least a laboratory-confirmed case was identified" [76][77][78].…”

“…ZIKV has caused epidemics during 2015-2017 in different countries of the Americas, with more than 50 countries/territories affected in this region, and 148 globally affected in any form (including imported cases). After Brazil, probably Colombia is the second most affected country in the region, with over 100,000 cases having been reported from this northern South American country, reflecting overall incidence rates above 150 cases/100,000 [18]. During the years 2015-2017, the circulation of ZIKV was confirmed in 560 municipalities and four districts of Colombia.…”

“…The biological and clinical behaviors exhibit not only different characteristics but also great similarities; thus, ZIKV could be easily confused with other arboviruses. The clinical picture may be further complicated by coinfections with various combinations of arboviruses [9,12,18].…”

“…In the past decade, the near real-time availability of novel and disparate internet-based data sources has motivated the development of complementary methodologies to track the incidence and spread of disease. The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) currently streamlines reports from ministries of health and reports weekly confirmed and suspected cases of arboviral diseases such as DENV, CHIK, and ZIKV by country [24,[26][27][28][29][30][31]. These reports provide up-todate data about the epidemiology of arboviral diseases in affected global regions [12], However, there is no detailed information about specific places, departments or municipalities, which is necessary to make more specific recommendations to travelers as well for public health prioritization and policies [4,27,29,32,33], especially during epidemics, as is the case for Honduras in 2019.…”
