Denmark, Switzerland and Portugal joined a growing number of European countries to report Zika infections among travelers returning from Latin America, where the mosquito-borne virus has been blamed for a surge in birth defects.Two people returning to Switzerland from Haiti and Colombia were also diagnosed with the virus, the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health said.Five people in Portugal have tested positive for the mosquito-transmitted Zika virus after recent trips to Brazil, but none required admission to hospital, the National Health Institute said Thursday.There have been no known cases of local transmission – infections generated within a country – in the U.S. or Europe, although France said such cases had occurred in its departments and territories in the Caribbean basin.
