Zika virus risk: updated country classifications

World Health Organization country risk classifications are published; UK guidance remains the same as these new classifications are reviewed Zika virus risk: updated country classifications

PHE and the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) are aware that on 10 March 2017, WHO published updated Zika country classifications [1,2]. We are in the process of reviewing how the classifications will fit with the current travel advice for Zika-affected areas and will plan to issue updated advice in due course.

Until the advice is updated, the existing advice available on the PHE Zika pages and the TravelHealthPro Country Information Pages from NaTHNaC remains valid for UK travellers.
