2. Mild Fever
Unlike a flu virus that can spike your temperature to dangerous levels, the Zika Virus is accompanied by a “low grade fever” of 38.5 Celsius (101.3 Fahrenheit) according to the World Health Organization (WHO). “Normal” average body temperature is 98.6 Fahrenheit, although it can vary slightly from person to person.
The mild fever often goes mostly unnoticed or symptoms may be misdiagnosed as the Dengue fever, another virus spread by mosquitoes. Unlike Zika, the Dengue virus can be fatal for adults in some cases (especially in children).
