Zika in 2017

Although many sources have stated that the Zika epidemic had ended back in 2016, in many exotic countries it still poses a risk, as I have researched.

I wish to start this thread as a "status" update about Zika's evolution in 2017. Others have asked about the disease as well.

Here's a map of where Zika is still spreading:

What do you know about Zika's 2017 status/situation? Have some countries cleared?

Very useful - I'm glad it's not so severe in West Africa where I'm headed soon.

I can see Colombia has zika where I go in the couple of months, but not worried as I'm not intend to get pregnant smile

Not sure whether Zika can cause long-term defects. At some point I read that it could have long-term consequences... That reminds me of dengue.

Yes, Colombia has Zika, so does Peru, Thailand. Too bad! I had some plans for this year...

The entire central part of Earth is affected. That means: basically those interesting exotic countries!

Look: Chile is safe!

Some of the worst-affected areas today are: Brazil, Puerto Rico, Singapore... and others
