Vietnam reports first microcephaly case likely linked to Zika – government agency

By My Pham HANOI (Reuters) – Vietnam’s health ministry on Sunday reported a microcephaly case that it says is likely to be the country’s first linked to the mosquito-borne Zika virus. The case, a four-month old baby whose mother was diagnosed with Zika when she was pregnant, was found in the central province of Dak Lak. “This is a microcephaly case with a high probability of being related to the Zika virus and also the first such case in Vietnam,” the General Department of Preventive Medicine, a department of the nation’s health ministry, said in a statement posted on its official website.
