[Correspondence] Updated Zika virus recommendations are needed

Although many questions remain unanswered about Zika virus, lessons can be taken from the recent epidemics, as emphasised during the second international conference on Zika virus and Aedes aegypti-related infections that took place in June, 2018, in Tallinn, Estonia. Zika virus circulation has decreased but the Zika virus story is probably not over.1 The possibility of Zika virus emergence or re-emergence and circulation should be considered in all areas in which the competent mosquito vectors (ie, Aedes spp and particularly A aegypti) are present.
