HCM CITY —  A pregnant woman visiting the Hùng Vương Obstetrics Hospital in HCM City picked up a leaflet about the Zika virus off a shelf in the examination room.

The woman, 41, was especially concerned about the virus after hearing that HCM City had recorded its first Zika case, that of a 33-year-old pregnant woman from District 2.

 

 “I’m worried about the disease as it can harm the fetus,” she said, adding that she would take the leaflet home for her husband and relatives to read. “They will have more awareness of this new disease and carry out preventive actions.”
