Abstract

Highlights:

Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Australia in 2018 (GC2018) will bring in visitors, athletes and officials from 71 countries.

Zika virus (ZIKV) infected visitors will likely be there and the local transmission of ZIKV during GC2018 will largely depend on the future growth of Aedes mosquito population in the area.

Control of Aedes mosquito population, and early detection and containment of any imported cases will be essential for the prevention of local transmission of Zika during GC2018.
