Dear Sir,

Emerging Zika virus infection becomes the problem worldwide.[1],[2],[3] The existence of the new disease in the new setting requires proper infectious control method. In Thailand, there are already some confirmed cases.[4] The management of the disease is now under the national surveillance, and Zika virus infection is now assigned to be disease to be reported according to Thai public health law. Focusing on the already existed cases, the site of existed emerging cases is very interesting. Two from seven sites are the border provinces (one with Cambodia and one with Myanmar). This implies the risk for cross-border disease migration. In addition, some sites are also the national and international tourist resort provinces. The concern for the tourist to prevent the disease is also needed.
