star this property answer text <p>In the United Kingdom, testing for Zika virus is carried out in the Public Health EnglandRare and Imported Pathogens Laboratory at Porton Down. In the event of a positive result, the clinicians caring for the patient are informed immediately, as well as local Public Health officials. The clinicians will be referred to the national guidance for further advice on management and follow-up. The majority of people (roughly 80%) infected do not have symptoms. For those with symptoms, <a href="http://ecdc.europa.eu/en/publications/_layouts/forms/Publication_DispForm.aspx?List=4f55ad51-4aed-4d32-b960-af70113dbb90&amp;ID=1413" target="_blank">Zika virus generally causes a mild, short-lived (2 to 7 days) illness</a>.</p><p> </p><p>In the case of a pregnant woman, the guidance suggests referral to a fetal medicine service for further assessment, including an ultrasound scan. Samples will also be tested for other infections prevalent in the geographical region that the patient has visited, and which may present with similar symptoms, such as dengue.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The risk to the United Kingdom population posed by Zika virus – and of the mosquito species which transmit the virus establishing itself in the UK – remains extremely low.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is ensuring the UK and those travelling to countries with active Zika transmission by mosquitoes are protected. Up-to-date travel advice is in place, and clinical advice is available to UK medical professionals. Public Health England has been working with Royal Colleges to provide guidance to healthcare professionals on managing symptomatic patients (including pregnant women) returning from areas with active transmission of Zika. This has been cascaded by appropriate Royal Colleges. Furthermore, NHS Blood and Transplant will defer donors returning from areas with active Zika transmission from donating for 28 days.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>On 13 May 2016 the Department of Health, along with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, convened an Olympic and Paralympic health advisory group. The group brought together academic experts and cross-government representatives to support the British Olympic Association (BOA) and British Paralympic Association (BPA) in updating their guidance to athletes and staff travelling to Brazil for the Olympics and to ensure consistency with that provided to the travelling public. Zika virus was a key topic for discussion along with other potential health risks. The BOA and BPA are updating their guidance in light of discussions at the meeting and with further input from the academics and clinicians present. The Foreign Office will link this to their wider consular campaign ‘Stay ahead of the Games’.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The risk of Zika virus to the United Kingdom population remains very low and has been regularly assessed and reviewed since the first reports of cases of Zika infection from Brazil in May 2015. A pre-Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies has met to review the Zika outbreak in the Americas, the link with microcephaly and other disorders, and the risk to the UK. In addition, a qualitative assessment of the risk that Zika virus presents to the UK population was undertaken by the UK Human Animal Infections and Risk Surveillance group, and this was published on the gov.uk website in February 2016, which can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hairs-risk-assessment-zika-virus" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hairs-risk-assessment-zika-virus</a></p><p> </p><p>All evidence is kept under constant review.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
