SINGAPORE (AP) — More than 40 people have been infected locally by the Zika virus in Singapore, but most have fully recovered, officials said Sunday.

Singapore has reported a total of 41 cases of the Zika virus believed to have been contracted within the city-state, rather than abroadSingapore on Sunday reported 40 more cases of locally transmitted Zika virus infections, most of them foreign workers at a construction site. All 41 are residents or workers in a suburban residential and industrial district, the Ministry of Health and the National Environment Agency said in a joint statement. "They are not known to have travelled to Zika-affected areas recently, and are thus likely to have been infected in Singapore," the statement said.

Ananthalakshmi SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore authorities have confirmed 41 cases of locally-transmitted Zika virus, which in Brazil has been linked to a rare birth defect, and said more cases were expected to be identified. On Saturday, authorities had confirmed Singapore's first case of a local transmission of the virus, to a 47-year-old Malaysian woman, also from the Aljunied area. "MOH (the ministry of health) cannot rule out further community transmission in Singapore since some of those tested positive also live or work in other parts of Singapore," the statement said.


A nationwide drive to weaken job guarantees for U.S. public school teachers shows no sign of fading away even though an extended legal battle to stop the practice of granting tenure in California went down in defeat last week. The California challenge, which would have made it easier for school districts to fire teachers deemed to be underachievers, reached the end of the line when the California Supreme Court declined to take up the case. The decision was a setback for advocates of sweeping changes in education that unionized teachers generally oppose, including a repeal of tenure and more funding for charter schools.
