Zika virus infection in Thailand: Common in coastal province

Although there has been a recent increase in cases of Zika virus infection in Thailand, there is still a long way to go before the disease becomes endemic in the country. The high prevalence of a particular anti-ZIKV antibody makes detection of an outbreak more difficult. This is not surprising considering that the country has a history of dengue and Japanese encephalitis, two other endemic viruses.

In the study, Thai public health authorities recruited pregnant women who are 18 years or older. Then, patients provided blood samples for laboratory testing. CNRS scientists, a French government agency, and Thai researchers worked in Thailand’s southern and southeastern provinces. They consulted with the national public health authorities to determine the incidence of malaria and to design surveillance networks. The WHO declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern.”

The first documented case of Zika virus infection in Europe was a Canadian woman who had been traveling in Thailand. Am J Trop Med Hyg 91(5), Tappe D, and Buathong R reported cases of Zika in the country. They cited the results of a surveillance network set up by the Thai government and published in Euro Surveill Bull Eur Sur MMR Eur Commun Dis Bull 19.

The first documented case of Zika virus infection in Europe was a Canadian woman who had recently returned from Thailand. The outbreak was documented in Singapore and other countries in Southeast Asia. This disease has been linked to birth defects. The World Health Organization has listed 84 countries as countries with a reported case of Zika. This has led to heightened surveillance and response in this region. The first report of a pregnancy-related complication has come from Thailand.

The first case of the disease in Thailand was reported in 2016. The study involved a population of pregnant women who were aged 18 years or older. The researchers then investigated the epidemiology of Zika virus infection in Thailand. The findings were published in The Lancet. They conclude that there are no signs of the disease in Thailand. Further research is needed to determine if the region is at risk. And, if it is, what steps should be taken to minimize its impact on the country.

The virus is found in people of all ages. In Thailand, the prevalence of ZIKV is between one-third and half of the population. This is similar to the prevalence in the United States, where there are more cases of the virus than in Thailand. However, the age distribution of the disease is more similar in Thailand than in other countries. The prevalence of the virus is higher in older people and pregnant women.
