[Correspondence] Infectious Zika viral particles in breastmilk

Before 2007, no Zika virus outbreak had been recorded, and Zika virus was deemed to cause mild infections.1 In 2013–14, an outbreak occurred in French Polynesia associated with an increased rate of Guillain-Barré syndrome following Zika infections.2 Zika virus spread in the Pacific region in 2014 and then, in 2015, to Brazil where an association between Zika infection and microcephaly is under investigation.2 There is a need for better comprehension of this disease.
