ĐỒNG NAI — The southeastern province of Đồng Nai has identified a new Zika virus infection case, bringing the total number of infections to seven, the province’s Preventive Health Centre said on Thursday.

Bạch Thái Bình, director of the centre, said a 37 year-old woman from Thống Nhất District’s Gia Tân 3 Commune was diagnosed with the Zika virus.

After detection, the centre collaborated with local authorities to mobilise local residents to clean up the environment and spray chemicals to kill mosquitoes in areas with Zika virus infections.

Previous Zika infections were discovered in Biên Hòa city and Nhơn Trạch District.— VNS
