    Updated at 3:31 pm on 9 March 2016

    Fiji authorities have reported a first case of Zika in the country.

    The health minister, Jone Usamate, has told the Fiji Sun that a woman in the Western Division has been treated.

    He says an awareness campaign is underway and people are advised to destroy breeding places for mosquitoes.
