The Zika virus has been known for quite some time, but it gained notoriety recently due to its possible linkage to birth defects.

Science News has a summary report on Zika virus:

A report on the studies of its possible linkage to microcephaly, a birth defect of babies with undersized and underdeveloped brains:
