Via Xinhua: 3rd case of Zika virus detected in S. Korea. Excerpt:
The third case of the Zika virus was detected in South Korea on Friday from a man having traveled to the Philippines, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said.
The 21-year-old man, who had made a trip to the Southeast Asian country for five days through April 14, tested positive for the mosquito-borne virus.
The virus was detected from his saliva and urine, but he didn't show any symptoms of the virus such as rash and muscle pain. So, he was not classified as a confirmed patient, according to the KCDC.
The man's 20-year-old brother, the second Zika case who had traveled to the Philippines together with the man, was classified as a confirmed patient on Wednesday.
The younger brother developed symptoms of flu from April 20 and started to show rash in his body on April 22. He was discharged from a hospital on Thursday as he recovered from the viral disease.
The first South Korean Zika case was found from a 43-year-old man on March 22.
