ENY-888: Zika, a Mosquito-Transmitted Virus

Figure 2. Proposed directional movement of Zika virus within Africa and through its invasive range. Hypothesized dates associated with Africa and Zika’s invasion of Asia are based on lineage construction from molecular analyses of gene sequences of viral isolates by Faye et al. (2014), from which part of this figure is derived and simplified. Other dates and proposed routes are based on independent outbreaks and isolates of Zika virus elsewhere but are not intended to include all routes and detections.
