First microcephaly case in Vietnam reported, likely Zika-related

HANOI - Vietnam reported the country's first microcephaly case that has a high probability of being linked to the mosquito-borne Zika virus, a department of the nation's health ministry said on Sunday.
The case, a four-month old baby whose mother was diagnosed with Zika when she was pregnant, was found in the central province of Dak Lak, the General Department of Preventive Medicine said in a statement posted on its official website.
Vietnam so far has reported nine cases of Zika infections across the country.
