Singapore authorities say they've identified 41 cases of Zika virus infection that were transmitted locally, and warned they expect to find more.

Thirty-six foreign construction workers are among those infected.

Singapore's first case of locally transmitted Zika had been reported only the day before.

Authorities have tested 124 people, primarily construction workers.

Seventy-eight have tested negative and five cases are pending, the reports said. In all, 34 patients have fully recovered.
