sep 20, 1957 - Mozambique
While the 1957 study in Mozambique suggests that ZIKV may have circulated in the past, we cannot assume that the virus is still present. No further studies have been conducted in Mozambique, which limits our discussion on whether the virus may have been eliminated during the efforts in the 1970s and 1980s to reduce the malaria burden through massive distribution of bed nets, community education, indoor and outdoor spraying campaigns, and
appropriate malaria case management, among others.
