[Photo/Agencies]SANTIAGO – Chile health authorities on Tuesday identified the first three cases of Zika virus on the mainland but said the people were infected while traveling abroad and did not present a risk to the general population.A 28-year-old man was infected while traveling in Colombia, a 28-year-old man contracted the virus in Venezuela and a 35-year-old man got the virus in Brazil.The health ministry said there is no danger of the virus spreading on mainland Chile. Zika is an infection linked to thousands of birth defects in Brazil that is spreading through Latin America and the Caribbean by mosquitoes.”Despite the confirmation of these cases, this is not a health risk for the population, since continental Chile does not have the mosquito that transmits the disease,” acting Health Minister Gisela Alarcon told reporters on Tuesday.Chiles Easter Island, some 3,700 km (2,300 miles) from the mainland, does have the mosquito that carries the disease and had 173 Zika cases in 2014. All the Zika cases on Easter Island were “mild” and no pregnant women presented any complications due to the infection, Chilean health authorities said.The World Health Organization has said the virus, linked to severe birth defects in Brazil, has been spreading rapidly in the Americas and could infect 4 million people. It said it had launched a global response unit to fight the mosquito-borne virus, which is spreading rapidly in Latin America.Africa and Asia are also seen as being vulnerable. 8.03KRelated StoriesWHO declares Zika virus extraordinary emergencyNation in bid to ward off the Zika virusNation in bid to ward off the Zika virusAustralias northern states braced for possible outbreak of Zika virusGovt steps up efforts to limit the Zika virusPhotoUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchEfforts needed for sustainable projects1st Panda cub born in France named Yuan MengFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauChina-JapanChina-USChina-AfricaChina-EuropeLi tells Japanese business leaders its time for bilateral cooperationChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationGroup of lawmakers visit notorious Yasukuni Shrine in JapanJapan can offer experience, expat saysChina-Japan ties seen at dialogue as benefit to regionChina, Japan officials exchange views on security issues at 15th dialogueChinese music finds new foothold in United StatesC919 flies toward air worthinessPolitical leaders: Sino-US relations to growChina vows steps after US launches probe into aluminum tradeGates is added to top-tier Chinese academyYao helps AB InBev fight alcohol abuseAction urged over pollutionUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityChina vows to deepen bilateral ties with new Zimbabwe govtChinese, African parties meet to share wisdom on modernization2nd China-Africa Investment Forum begins in MoroccoLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchPeak performance by Chinese nurse on Scotlands mountains9-month festival of Chinese art, heritage to be staged in Liverpool, UK, next yearChina eyes closer economic, trade cooperation with BelarusPremier calls to enhance trade liberalization and facilitation in SCOPremier: China to advance production capacity with UzbekistanAsia PacificUS & CanadaEuropeAfricaMiddle EastChinese tourists go to South KoreaChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingBelt and Road a great opportunity: Uzbek officialKwaussie wins Australias word of the yearJapan can offer experience, expat saysTrudeau visits Sina WeiboChina, Canada agree to issue joint statement on climate changeDemocrats stand united against GOP tax billUS quits talks on global migration pactTensions triggered over possible moveSino-Canadian bilateral trade ties to deepen furtherMay gets little gasp as EU extends deadline for sufficient progress in Brexit talksRussia banned from Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsGerman trains collide near Duesseldorf, several people injuredLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchBoth first ladies name panda cub Yuan MengLiu Yandong heralds bilateral cooperation in education and researchEthiopian FM urges strengthened Ethiopia-China tiesUNs top environmental honors go to three in ChinaAction urged over pollutionBelt and Road Initiative to help countries achieve UN goals: officialChina unveils Model Confucius Institute edifice in Ghana universityMorocco king holds historic talks with South African president in AbidjanYemens ex-president Saleh, relatives killed by HouthisTrump recognition of Jerusalem as Israeli capital would raise regional tensionsYemen rattled by raids as clashes spreadSquash a perfect match for girl refugees in JordanSyrian talks in Geneva to continue to Dec 15: UN envoyAll parties in Syria urged to join talksMost PopularHot TopicsMyanmar electionChina and JapanDPRKSyrias refugee crisisGreek debt crisisSouth China SeaMH370Iran nuclear talksMERS virusNepal earthquakeReporters JournalChinese-American scientists should not be singled outWill Obama be inspired by his once-closest neighbor’?San Francisco real estate feels chill of Chinas economic tailwindsHighlightsJohn Kerry visits ChinaXi to visit Saudi Arabia, Egypt and IranXi-style diplomacy in 2015…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
