QCOSTARICA – Fumigating and house-to-house visits to identify and destroy mosquito breeding grounds are part of the Ministry of Health to contain the Zika virus in the area of Nicoya, Guanacaste, after confirming the first two indigenous cases.

A 24 year-old resident of Samara, who is 38 weeks pregnant and her 32 year-old neighbour are the first two cases of the virus in the country, confirms Health officials.

The cases promoted the Ministry of Health to declare a health emergency in the canton of Nicoya, a move that could be extended to other cantons.

Fernando Llorca Castro, minister of Health, said four other suspected cases of the Zika virus were discarded after laboratory tests.

So far, Costa Rica has reported four cases: two local cases confirmed Monday and two imported, one from Colombia and the other from Honduras.

The northern neighbour Nicaragua reports 77 cases of the Zika virus and to the south, Panama, reports 73 cases.
