Locally transmitted Zika infects 41 in Singapore
Singapore: More than 40 people have been infected locally by the Zika virus in Singapore, but most have fully recovered, officials said on Sunday.
Singapore announced its first Zika infection in May, with the virus imported by a 48-yearold man who had travelled to Brazil. On Sunday, the ministry of health confirmed 41 locally transmitted cases of the virus.
The ministry said in a statement that the patients were “not known to have travelled to Zika-affected areas recently, and are thus likely to have been infected in Singapore. This confirms that local transmission of Zika virus infection has taken place.” Hindustan Times
