First Locally Contracted Zika Outbreak in the US

Hosted by

Until now, infections of Americans by the Zika virus have been travel related. Now, for the first time in the continental United States, several people apparently have been infected by mosquitoes. Florida Governor Rick Scott told reporters, "One of these four cases involve the woman and the other three cases involve men they're all active Zika cases and have not exhibited symptoms to be admitted to the hospital." Pam Belluck, health reporter for the New York Times, has more on the story.
