Pregnant Malaysian Woman has Zika

The authorities of Malaysia have confirmed its first case of the Zika virus in a pregnant woman - as the mosquito-borne disease linked to severe brain defects continues to spread across Southeast Asia.

"The woman is expecting her first child and is three to four months pregnant", Malaysia's health minister said, in a statement on the ministry's Facebook page.

Her husband, who works in Singapore, has also shown symptoms for Zika and is undergoing tests.

Malaysia on Saturday reported its first locally transmitted Zika case, a 61-year-old man who was already in fragile health due to other conditions and subsequently died of heart-related complications.

"Besides that, pregnant woman that has no signs or symptoms but has a partner that is confirmed with Zika infection, confirmatory test will be conducted for the woman", he added.

Subramaniam added that the husband had shown similar symptoms September 2nd and been admitted to a hospital ward for investigation.

Zika has been spiralling in Singapore since the beginning of September with health officials updating the number of cases to 275 on Tuesday, including two pregnant women.

The 27-year-old woman in the southern state of Johor is the third case in Malaysia of the virus, which can result in infected pregnant women giving birth to deformed babies. So far, 400 houses had been inspected and 450 premises fogged.

He also advised members of public whose spouse are infected with Zika to avoid sex or take precautions for at least six months to avoid pregnancy.

"Taking into account the proximity to Singapore, we have projected the likelihood of increasing cases in Johor Baru".

The Malaysian woman reportedly had a fever, rashes, and body ache.

The country's Health Ministry said the blood and urine tests of 30 other suspected victims were found to be negative for the virus.
