Probably just a dead end (one man, infected in Brazil, now in isolation)...but it would be "interesting" if Zika would spread in a new country.

South Korea has confirmed its first case of the Zika virus, in a man who had recently returned from Brazil.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention said the 43-year-old was diagnosed on Tuesday and was being treated in Gwangju city.

South Korea said the infected man had been quarantined and his movements tracked since returning home, according to the Yonhap news agency.
