First case of Zika Pregnancy
GEORGE TOWN, (AP): THE CAYMAN Islands is reporting its first case of a pregnant woman infected with Zika.
The government says it has a total of 26 confirmed cases of the mosquito-borne virus, including 17 contracted locally. Officials said Wednesday that the cases have been reported in the capital, George Town.
The British Caribbean territory reported its first local Zika transmission in August.
The virus can cause severe birth defects. Britain’s Prince William, and his wife Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, arrive at a tea party with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Government House in Victoria, British Columiba, yesterday.
