    VI 68    Chikungunya Virus    
    Causes fever and joint pain; other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash. Transmitted by mosquito. Outbreaks have occurred in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans and the Caribbean. There is a risk that the virus will be imported to new areas by infected travellers.

    VI 69    Herpes Virus 7    
    Often acts together with herpes virus 6; can cause a skin condition in infants known as exanthema subitum; also leads to or is associated with a number of other symptoms, including acute febrile respiratory disease, fever, rash, vomiting, diarrhoea, low lymphocyte counts, and febrile seizures, though often no symptoms present at all. Over 95% of adults have been infected and are immune to HHV-7, and over three quarters of those were infected before the age of six.

    VI 70    Parvovirus B19    
    Causes a mild rash illness called erythema infectiosum or Fifth Disease; more common in children than adults. People with weakened immune systems caused by leukemia, cancer, organ transplants, or HIV infection are at risk for serious complications from fifth disease.

    VI 71    Zika Virus    
    Most common symptoms are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis. The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome and pregnant women giving birth to babies with birth defects and poor pregnancy outcomes have been linked to the virus. Outbreaks have occurred in areas of Africa, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands and South America. Transmitted by mosquitos.
