Supplementary notes

Estimates are according to the Baseline Zika (current rate of infection) scenario. This scenario assumes that the spread of the infection in each country will follow a pattern similar to that seen since the beginning of the epidemic in the region, as per linear projections based on the data released by country health authorities and published by PAHO. This represents a conservative scenario in which the epidemic will exhibit three equal-sized infection seasons and in which containment efforts through investments in vector control and other prevention efforts are such that the rate of spread of the disease does not increase.
