Accuracy in Media

Uh oh; this isn’t good news for travelers, but then again, natives are apparently immune to Zika:

The CDC has issued a travel warning urging pregnant women to consider postponing nonessential travel to Brunei, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Thailand, East Timor and Vietnam.

The alert is less serious than warnings the CDC has issued for other countries. Last month, Singapore reported 400 locally transmitted cases of the mosquito-borne virus, prompting the CDC to urge pregnant women not to travel there.
