Zika virus is mainly transmitted to humans through mosquitoes but can potentially also be transmitted through substances of human origin.

|Pesticides: Member States support Commission's proposal to restrict the conditions of use of glyphosate
The Member States – in the Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (meeting of national experts) – today voted in favour of a proposal by the Commission to restrict the conditions of use of glyphosate in the EU. These conditions include a ban of a co-formulant (POE-tallowamine) from glyphosate-based products, obligations to reinforce scrutiny of pre-harvest use of glyphosate as well as to minimise the use in specific areas (public parks and playgrounds). The proposal was made in parallel with the extension of the approval of the active substance for the limited time. The measures will apply for the duration of the extension until ECHA issues its opinion.11 Juillet 2016
