By the end of last year, over 450 people here had been diagnosed with the Zika virus. And now, the first Zika cluster of 2017 was detected in Simon Place, near Kovan in Hougang.
Two locally transmitted cases had been confirmed. This means the patients didn’t travel to Zika-infected places, but contradicted it in Singapore.
Both are from the same household, and The Straits Times understands that neither person is pregnant.
