The Zika virus struck again for the 14th time in the South Korean nation, health officials confirmed on Saturday.

According to The Korea Times, the number of people infected by Zika rose to 14 following the recent travel of a 34-year-old man to Thailand. It is confirmed that he was bitten last week, and received medical treatment on Friday.

Health officials stated that the Thailand vacationer remains in stable condition and is currently being administered additional tests at a Seoul hospital, the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said.

Moreover, the other 13 infected South Korean civilians include ten of which traveled to southeast Asian countries like the Philipines and Vietnam; the other three had traveled to Central and South American nations such as Brazil, officials stated.

The viral infection known as Zika, first discovered in Africa, causes few to no symptoms and has been associated with pregnancy birth defects and abnormalities. Although numerous nations have increased health security and budgets to help counteract the elusive viral infection, there seems to be no end in sight for the virus.

The battle continues.
