PRAGUE, March 3 (Xinhua) -- The Czech Republic has identified its third case of Zika virus in a 38-year-old female tourist who recently returned from the Dominican Republic, local media reported on Thursday.

The woman, who returned from her vacation in the Caribbean one month ago and received treatment in the infection ward of Prague's hospital Na Bulovce, has already been released for home treatment after she was found in good condition, said senior consultant of the the hospital's infection department Hany Rohacova.

Czech Health Ministry spokeswoman Dana Salamounova confirmed the woman was not pregnant.

Czech Health Ministry identified the first two cases of the mosquito-borne Zika virus in the country on February 25. The patients were a man and a woman who had returned from separate trips to the Caribbean two weeks before. The man stayed in Martinique and the woman in the Dominican Republic. They suffered from rash and flu-like symptoms.

Over the possible occurrence of Zika in the Czech Republic, the government has already decided that it will not take any special precautions as the virus could not be spread by air.
