  1. a IU information unavailable, NT not tested because specimen was not available, negative, + positive
  2. bqRT-PCR was performed using genesig Zika virus polyprotein standard kit (PrimerDesign Ltd., UK). Virus titer was estimated by testing pre-quantitated dilution of viral RNA transcripts (provided in the kit) and standard curve calculation generated by the ABI 7500 instrument (Applied Biosystems)
  3. cData were obtained using Anti-Zika Virus IgM/IgG ELISA kits (Euroimmun, Germany)
