Two Zika cases reported in Chiang Mai


A house in Chiang Mai’s Sansai district and its surrounding area within 100-metre radius have been declared off-limits to unauthorized outsiders by Tambon Sansai Luang municipality after a boy and a girl were tested positive with Zika virus.


Mr Nathee Damrong, the mayor of the municipality, said that the declaration of disease control area around a house in Ban Jo, village five of Tambon Sansai Noi for 28 days was necessary to keep the virus from spreading as a precaution after the two Zika cases were confirmed.

It was however reported that the two kids, both about 10-11 years old, had already been treated at a hospital and their conditions have returned to normal and they have now been discharged.
