Fifty-three cases of the Zika virus have now been reported in Britain, health officials revealed yesterday, according to the Daily Mail.

It is thought that all of those who have been affected by the virus had recently travelled back from abroad.

In the most recent cases, a hospital trust said three patients had been treated for the virus in Yorkshire.

Though the condition of the individuals is unknown, the infection is considered to be mild and most do not require hospital treatment.

The number of cases could be higher as some travellers who are unwell may not be aware they have picked up the virus.

Professor Paul Cosford, medical director at Public Health England, said: 'We expect to see small numbers of Zika virus infections in travellers returning to the UK, but the risk to the wider population is very low as the mosquito that spreads the Zika virus is not found in the UK.

'As of July 27, 2016, over 50 cases have been diagnosed in UK travellers since January 2016. Public Health England is monitoring the international situation closely and the risk to the UK remains unchanged.
