Sad news of Zika's spreading effects.

Panama has registered a baby born with a brain disorder believed linked to the Zika virus, in what is thought to be the first such case outside Brazil in the current outbreak.

Traces of the mosquito-born virus were found in the baby's umbilical cord.

The baby had been born with an underdeveloped brain, a condition known as microcephaly, which health experts suspect is linked to the virus...

The Panamanian baby's mother had not reported any symptoms of Zika during her pregnancy.

Her baby died four hours after being born.
