Provisional Data as of September 20, 2017
Zika virus disease is a nationally notifiable condition. Cases are reported to CDC by state, territorial, and local health departments using standard case definitions. This webpage contains provisional data reported to ArboNET for January 1, 2017 – September 20, 2017.

US States

  • 268 symptomatic Zika virus disease cases reported*
    • 264 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
    • 1 case acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission
    • 3 cases acquired through sexual transmission

US Territories

  • 556 symptomatic Zika virus disease cases reported*
    • 0 cases in travelers returning from affected areas
    • 556 cases acquired through presumed local mosquito-borne transmission
    • 0 cases acquired through other routes†

Footnotes
*Excludes congenital disease cases. Data reported to the US Zika Pregnancy Registry for outcomes of pregnancies with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection in the United States is available at Outcomes of Pregnancies with Laboratory Evidence of Possible Zika Virus Infection in the United States.

†Sexually transmitted cases are not reported for US territories because with local transmission of Zika virus it is not possible to determine whether infection occurred due to mosquito-borne or sexual transmission.

*Includes reported confirmed and probable Zika virus disease cases per the CSTE case definitions.

†Presumptive viremic blood donors are people who reported no symptoms at the time of donating blood, but whose blood tested positive when screened for the presence of Zika virus RNA by the blood collection agency. Some presumptive viremic blood donors develop symptoms after their donation or may have had symptoms in the past.  These individuals may be reported as both Zika virus disease cases and presumptive viremic blood donors.
