THAILAND : Thai public health authorities have stepped up surveillance on the Zika virus spread after two pregnant women in Bangkok found to have been infected with the virus which could lead to microcephaly.

One of the women already gave birth to a healthy baby who has no symtoms of the deadly virus so far, but authorities will continue to monitor the baby’s health condition and conduct regular blood and urine tests.

Another infected woman currently has an 18-week-old pregnancy and her condition is being closely monitored by health authorities, according to Benjasai Keeyapat, the BMA’s spokesperson.
