New Cases of Zika Infection Detected in Hungary
Two people have been diagnosed with the mosquito-borne Zika virus after returning to Hungary from Thailand, the National Public Health Centre (NNK) said.

Both patients exhibited only mild symptoms, the authority said. No local infections have been detected, NNK added.

As the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, Asia and the Pacific have become increasingly popular travel destinations for Hungarians, the authority has advised those returning from there to consult a doctor if they experience symptoms like fever, headache, rashes, joint or muscle pain or red eyes within a period of three weeks.
