In this study, a theoretical model of Zika virus transmission is investigated with ran-dom parameters. The parameters of a deterministic model are transformed to ran-dom variables to obtain a system of random differential equations. The approximate solutions of the model are analyzed with modified random differential transformation method. It is seen that modified random differential transformation method performs better than random differential transformation method on long time intervals.
