Experts say Burma is largely unprepared for an outbreak of Zika, as the Health Ministry slashes anti-virus measures due to a lack of funds.
Thai health officials say 33 new Zika virus cases have been detected in the country as officials step up screening for groups at high risk from the disease.
A pregnant foreign woman has been diagnosed with Zika in the first confirmed case of the mosquito-borne virus in Burma, according to state media.
The proposed move is the latest sign of growing concern about the spread of the mosquito-borne disease in Southeast Asia.
The first reported cases of Zika-related microcephaly in Southeast Asia came a day after US health officials issued an advisory about the growing risk of the disease in the region.
The advisory issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention comes as Burma and other countries in the region prepare for the peak tourism season.
