(Thailand): A man has contracted the Zika virus in Thailand, officials said Tuesday. The 22-year-old Thai man is likely to have caught the same strain of the virus that has caused panic in countries such as Brazil and Colombia, AFP reported. The man has recovered and been discharged from hospital, said Air Vice Marshall Santi Srisermpoke, director of Bangkok’s Bhumibol Adulyadej Hospital. 

It was not clear how long the man was in hospital, or where he contracted the virus. Last month, Taiwan reported one case of Zika infection in a man from Thailand after he set off a temperature scanner at Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport, Reuters said.
