5 February 2016 – WHO releases its first situation report for the public health emergency that it announced on 1 February 2016, after a spike in cases of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome in the Americas. These cases are strongly suspected to be linked to Zika virus, a mosquito-transmitted disease that has spread to more than 25 countries and territories in the region.
