Malaysian Zika Patient Dies From Heart-Related Complications

KOTA kINABALU, Sabah, East Malaysia - A man from Sabah who tested positive for Zika has died from heart-related complications.
Health Ministry director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah(photo) confirmed that the 61-year-old from Taman Public Jaya in Likas died on Saturday afternoon from heart-related complications, not the virus.
The patient developed a fever on Aug 27 and went to a clinic on Aug 30 and sought further treatment at Queen Elizabeth Hospital 2 the next day when he experienced worsening fever, muscle aches and diarrhea.
He was scheduled for heart surgery next month. 
The death is not due to Zika, said Dr Noor Hisham in a short WhatsApp message. 
He stressed that Zika only "causes mild symptoms and signs, not death". The Ministry said earlier on Saturday that the man was believed to be the first locally-transmitted Zika infection in the country.
