The 34-year-old Duke of Sussex and his wife are aware of the current epidemic of Zika-infested mosquitos in the areas they are set to visit and how it can affect pregnant women, and have reassured the royal family and the public that they have taken on the recommendations of doctors to avoid Meghan coming into contact with the virus.

Zika can also be transmitted through sex without a condom with someone who was infected by the virus, even if that person does not show symptoms of Zika.
