One Newfoundland man has been diagnosed with a case of Zika virus, the insect-borne virus spreading around the world.
Newfoundland and Labrador`s chief medical officer of health says that one adult male was diagnosed with Zika in April after a visit to the Caribbean. He initially sought treatment for a rash, and has since recovered from the illness.
Dr. David Allison did not provide information on the man`s age, or where in the province he received treatment.
