SYDNEY, Jumada I 02, 1437, February 11, 2016, SPA -- A pregnant woman in Australia has tested positive for the Zika virus after traveling overseas. It's the second such case this week, according to AP.
Victoria state Health Minister Jill Hennessy told reporters on Friday that the woman was diagnosed with Zika after returning from a country where the mosquito-borne virus is prevalent. She declined to provide any other details about the case, including where the woman had traveled, citing patient privacy.
