Four Zika cases found in New York among returning travellers | Reuters

Four people who had returned from travel abroad have tested positive in New York state with infections with the mosquito-transmitted Zika virus, local health officials said on Wednesday.

Two tested positive in New York City, city health officials said. Neither had severe complications, they said.

A person who resides in Nassau County had travelled to a country with documented transmission of the virus and developed symptoms in August, had a mild illness, was not hospitalized and has completely recovered, a county health department spokeswoman said.

An Orange County resident who had travelled to South America tested positive, the county health commissioner's office said. The office did not provide information on the person's condition.
