    CHP notified of additional imported case of Zika Virus Infection on Mainland

    11 March 2016

    The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (March 11) received notification of an additional imported case of Zika Virus Infection on the Mainland from the National Health and Family Planning Commission and the Health and Family Planning Commission of Guangdong Province. The CHP again urged the public to adopt strict anti-mosquito measures during travel. Pregnant women and those planning pregnancy should consider deferring their trip to the affected areas.

    The case involves a 19-year-old man who lives in Venezuela. He arrived at Hong Kong International Airport on February 29 and shortly later on the same day travelled to Enping, Jiangmen, Guangdong, by bus via Shenzhen Bay Control Point. He remained afebrile during his travel. He developed a rash on March 9 and subsequently was laboratory confirmed to be an imported case of Zika Virus Infection by the Health and Family Planning Commission of Guangdong Province. The patient is now hospitalised for isolation and management and is in stable condition.

    To date, 13 imported cases of Zika Virus Infection have been notified on the Mainland.
