OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ An Omaha woman infected with the Zika virus while pregnant has delivered a healthy baby girl.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that Evelyn Suastegui gave birth to the girl on Tuesday. Suastegui was the first pregnant woman in Nebraska to have a confirmed case of the mosquito-borne virus.
Suastegui had said she began feeling ill while vacationing last year in Mexico. Her Zika infection _ and pregnancy _ were diagnosed after she returned to Nebraska.
Doctors spent the rest of her pregnancy checking for fetal abnormalities.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that 1 in 10 pregnant women in the continental United States with a confirmed Zika infection delivered a baby with serious defects.
