An Indonesian woman who contracted Zika while pregnant with her second child has been able to return home after undergoing treatment in Indonesia.
The mother, named as Momo, returned to her home in Sulawesi province on Sunday and was able to visit her family on Monday.
The mother was treated at a hospital in Kuta in Sulawsesi province.
She was taken to a hospital by helicopter and has been placed in isolation.
She was treated for severe fevers, according to her mother, who spoke to TechRadars sister site The Jakarta Post.
According to her, her son is now able to go outside and exercise, and is in better condition than before the virus was discovered.
A mother’s story from IndonesiaThis mother of two, who has not been identified, was one of more than 40 Indonesians who contracted the Zika infection in Indonesia before being placed in the intensive care unit.
She has recovered, and now has a healthy baby boy, according the Indonesian government.
It’s good for me and my family, it’s good because now I have a child,” she said, adding that she is hoping to return to her hometown, Kuta.
Indonesia, the world’s largest producer of rice, has been hit hard by the Zika outbreak, which has left at least 30 people dead and hundreds more in need of medical care.
Rice exports to Europe have plummeted and demand for imported rice is also on the rise.
But Indonesia has managed to avoid a full-blown food crisis by allowing farmers to harvest crops to keep up with demand, and by importing grain.
