Malaysia reports first case of Zika virus
Malaysia has reported its first case of Zika – a woman who tested positive for the mosquito-borne virus after a visit to neighbouring Singapore, where 115 people have been infected.
This virus is particularly concerning to pregnant women and their unborn babies, due to the link made between the mosquito borne disease and microcephaly, an abnormal smallness of the head that does not allow the brain to develop properly.
