An official with the WHO said the announcement is "not downgrading the importance of Zika." Instead, Zika is now considered a chronic problem as opposed to an outright international crisis.

Zika still poses a serious risk to pregnant women and babies; the virus has been linked to cases of microcephaly and other neonatal complications.
