The first information on Zika Virus comes from mid of the 20th century. However, the current epidemiological situation is noticeably different. Initial information on occurrence in animals (Macaca mulatta) and later occasional human infections have reached epidemic extent within the last decade. Only complications described at the end of 2015 are serious (Guillain-Barré syndrome, microcephalia). Considering further possible spread of the infection, changes of the virus properties, geographical spread of the vectors of transmission (particularly Aedes mosquitoes) as well as increased travel and commercial activities are important. The future of the Zika Virus will be probably in coincidence with redistribution of the vectors of transmission as well as with new ways of interhuman transmission.
