SALAZAR, Pablo M. De; JANE, Mireia; MARESMA, Mar  y  PLASENCIA, Antoni. Evaluation of the autochthonous transmission risk of Zika virus and other emerging mosquito-borne viral diseases in Catalonia (Spain). Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.1, pp.101-105. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2017.09.004.

The recent Zika virus epidemic has highlighted the potential risk of introducing the arbovirosis to Europe, especially within the Mediterranean region where the vector, Aedes albopictus, has become established as an invasive species. In this context, a comprehensive evaluation of the risk of introducing the Zika virus and other mosquito-borne viruses of public health importance in Catalonia (Spain) was carried out. This article summarises the results of the preliminary assessment and the recommendations for the public health preparedness and response plan against the threat posed by these emerging diseases.

Palabras clave : Zika virus; Arbovirus; Catalonia; Risk assessment; Mediterranean.
