Singapore reports first case of Zika

SINGAPORE, May 15, (AFP): Singapore said Friday it had detected the first case of Zika in someone who had travelled to Brazil, the epicentre of the outbreak. The Ministry of Health said the 48-year-old male foreigner, who is a Singapore permanent resident, had visited Sao Paolo from March 27 to May 7.

He developed a fever and rash from May 10 and was admitted to hospital two days later and isolated, the ministry said in a joint statement with the National Environment Agency (NEA). Brazil is the hotbed of the mosquito- borne Zika virus outbreak, with the virus blamed for birth defects in babies born to infected women.
