China's first patient with the Zika virus was discharged from hospital on Sunday.

China confirmed the imported Zika case on February 9. The patient, a 34-year-old man from Ganxian county in Jiangxi Province, developed a fever, headache and dizziness on January 28 in Venezuela, before returning to his hometown on February 5 via Hong Kong and Shenzhen.

He was treated at a hospital in Ganxian, according to a provincial health and family planning commission statement on Sunday.

He made a full recovery following treatment, according to the statement. Tests on his serum, urine and saliva samples returned negative results.

Symptoms of the Zika virus, which spreads to people through mosquito bites, include fever, joint pain, a rash, conjunctivitis, headache and muscle pain.

The Zika virus may cause microcephaly, a serious birth defect. A report published earlier in the New England Journal of Medicine confirmed the link between Zika and microcephaly in medical tests.

Several Latin American countries, including Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador, had advised women to avoid becoming pregnant for the next two years.
