The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a Zika alert advisory recommending pregnant women to postpone nonessential travel to 11 Southeast Asian countries. Zika virus infection causes severe birth defects.

These Southeast Asian countries include Brunei, Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste (East Timor), and Vietnam.

The CDC said “travel notices,” like those issued for Zika-struck countries like Brazil and Singapore, have not been issued for these destinations, but such warnings would be considered if the number of cases rises to the level of an outbreak.

It is considered endemic in these countries, the CDC said in a statement, and many people who live there are likely immune.
