Zika Virus and the Insurance that insures it

Recently Zika Virus has been the most discussed topic after more and more people in Singapore are affected.

What is Zika Virus?

It is transmitted by the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes (which bite in the daytime), identical to dengue. Zika is generally a mild disease. Zika may cause a viral fever similar to dengue or chikungunya, with fever, skin rashes, body aches and headache. However, most people infected with the Zika virus infection do not develop symptoms. There is no vaccine or specific anti-viral drugs.
