Nicaragua is confirming its first two cases of the Zika virus in pregnant women.

Government spokeswoman Rosario Murillo says four women have tested positive for the virus in the Central American nation, including two who are three and one-half and four months pregnant. That brings the country's total known cases of Zika to 15.

Murillo says the country is monitoring World Health Organization recommendations and has directed local health authorities to pay close attention to pregnant women who may have contracted Zika.

She noted Tuesday that not all pregnant women infected with Zika give birth to babies with the rare condition known as microcephaly.
