Four suspected cases of the Zika virus are currently under investigation here in Cayman.
Blood samples were flown to the central Caribbean public health agency in Trinidad for confirmation, to see if any of the four people under investigation are infected with zika virus.
The results will be released in the next seven days.

“We can’t confirm that there is any Zika, the case is clinically, there are symptoms that could be suggested for zika, but can be suggested for Dengue or Chikingunya, actually we will be testing the patient for dengue and Chikingunya as well. Once we receive the report of the lab from the Caribbean public health agency , we will then be in a position to confirm or deny if it’s actually zika or not,” said Dr. Samuel Williams-Rodriguez, Acting Medical Officer of Health.

Dr. Williams also says that if there s an outbreak of a mosquito-borne disease in the Cayman Islands, the public does not need to worry due to protocols already established between the H.S.A and the mosquito control unit.
