The Ministry of Health (MOH) has confirmed 41 cases of locally-transmitted Zika, all of whom were residents or workers in the Aljunied Crescent and Sims Drive area. None of the cases are known to have travelled to Zika-affected areas recently, suggesting local transmission.

Testing for the virus only began yesterday (Aug 27), after a doctor working in the area reported an unusual increase in viral fever.

The somewhat good news is, 34 cases have fully recovered.
