Health officials in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico say a man infected with the Zika virus is suffering from a temporary paralysis condition called Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Health Secretary Ana Rius said that the man is between 30 and 40 years old and developed the paralysis about two weeks after he broke out in a rash. She did not provide any other details.

Puerto Rico has 22 confirmed Zika cases.
