Zika numbers flat as outbreak shows signs of slowing

Cayman’s Zika outbreak continues to show signs of slowing. Public Health officials told Cayman 27 only one new possible case is under investigation this week.

Public Health officials said they have now investigated 233 individuals since the year began. No new cases have been confirmed since the 18th of October, leaving Zika numbers flat at 29 lab-confirmed cases, broken down into two categories; 19 locally acquired cases and ten imported cases.

Two pregnant women have become infected, but Public health said right now the babies are fine.

However, Public Health has confirmed its second case of imported dengue of the year. This is an individual with travel history to a country where dengue is endemic.
