Pregnant Australian woman tests positive for Zika

A pregnant Queensland woman has tested positive for the Zika virus.

The woman had recently returned from an overseas trip, but health officials have yet to name the country she was visiting.

It's Australia's third case of Zika, after two other people in Queensland contracted it while abroad.

The virus, which is in more than 20 countries, has been linked to birth defects in thousands of babies in Brazil.
