Zika in Hanoi/Sapa

Hey everyone,

My wife and I just found out today (unexpectedly) that she is pregnant. Fantastic news! however we are scheduled to fly to Hanoi in just 5 days time and spent 1 day in Hanoi and 4 days in Sapa.

We are both very concerned reading about Zika virus in Vietnam, however everything seems to be focused on the southern region (HCM) and most articles are from 1 or 2 years ago.

Does anyone have any update on Zika in Vietnam? Is it still a problem? Particularly in the northern region.

Thanks in advance!

My concern is that Zika is more than likely under reported so you don't really get an accurate reading.

All web sites Ive looked at do not recommend travel to Zika countries while pregnant and for their partners also..it can be transmitted.

I think Zika could potentially be any where in Vietnam.,
