Joergen Richt, DVM, PhD, director of CEEZAD, Kansas State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, discusses different animals that have the potential to serve as a reservoir for Zika virus. Dr. Richt also delves into past studies that had been dedicated to understanding what kinds of animals are susceptible to experimental infection with Zika, such as armadillos and frogs.
