    Thailand: Zika prompts travel warning

    Pregnant women are being urged to reconsider travelling to Thailand after several cases of the Zika virus were reported in the country.

    Thailand is one of the few places outside the Americas and the Caribbean where the mosquito-borne virus has been detected.

    The Foreign and Commonwealth Office amended its advice to suggest people travelling to Thailand follow the advice of the National Travel Health Network and Centre, particularly women who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy.
