Three die in Colombia after contracting Zika, developing nerve disorder: official

Colombia said Friday that three people had died after contracting the Zika virus and developing a rare nerve disorder called Guillain-Barre, in which the immune system attacks the nervous system.

“We have confirmed and attributed three deaths to Zika,” said Martha Lucia Ospina, head of the National Health Institute. “In this case, the three deaths were preceded by Guillain-Barre syndrome.”
