Singapore confirms 41 cases of locally transmitted Zika virus

Singapore confirmed 41 cases of Zika virus mostly among foreign construction workers in the southeastern area. All but seven of the infected were fully recovered and the seven still remain in the hospital. None of the workers traveled across any active zones of Zika virus, so it is self-evident that the 41 cases were locally transmitted. The construction site where majority of the infected people were first found discontinued work and evacuated the worker dormitory for inspection. Zika virus could be critical to pregnant women causing microcephaly, babies being born with small heads leading to development issues.
