First Person Dies In Puerto Rico After Zika Virus Outbreak

The first person in the small island of Puerto Rico has died amid an outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus, Zika.

A 70 year old man infected with Zika died back in February from a drop in blood platelets.

The U.S territory has seen more than 600 cases, 73 of those affecting pregnant women.

Zika can cause severe birth defects, such as babies being born with abnormally small heads.
