AN INCURABLE, potentially deadly virus which is spread by mosquitos and can cause infected mothers to give birth to babies with tiny heads could spread to the US within months, and potentially reach Europe, scientists have warned.

The Zika virus has spread at an alarming rate in South American in the past year and experts fear the US southern states could be the next places to experience outbreaks.

.

It is unknown why cases of the virus, which has been linked to a number of deaths and has no vaccine, has suddenly exploded in the past few years.

.

This week it made its way to Puerto Rico, which was the gateway to the US for other mosquito-borne diseases.

.

It has already spread across Mexico.

.

Scott Weaver, the director of the Institute for Human Infections and Immunity at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, said: "I think the Zika virus is going to be knocking on the doorstep in places like Florida and Texas probably in the spring or summer. It is spreading really fast."

.

Alarmingly, it is thought to be transmitted by mosquitos, including Aedes albopictus, which is found as far north as the south of France in Europe.

.

Officials in Brazil estimate that 1.5million people were infected with Zika last year.

.

It was previously thought to be relatively harmless - giving the symptoms of Za rash, headaches, pain in the bones, and fever around three to 12 days after a mosquito bite.

.

But with more people getting it in Brazil, it has now been linked to causing the birth defect microcephaly which results in incomplete brain development and the affected child having a small head.

.

There have been previous cases of microcephaly in Brazil, but the around 300 a year average ballooned to 3,000 - 10 times as many last year.

.

Zika has now made it to India and Pakistan and parts of Africa, as far north as Egypt, prompting fears it could arrive in Europe through the stream of migrants from Africa and the Middle East.
