Before this year, the illness had not been seen in the U.S. since a 2003 outbreak, which sickened 47 people.

Symptoms of the virus include fatigue, fever, headache and muscle aches. Within a week to 14 days after exposure, patients develop a bumpy rash that spreads to the entire body.

Most patients recover within a month, though they are considered contagious until the raised bumps have scabbed over and fallen off. The illness is rarely fatal.
