Gov: 4 Zika cases likely came from Florida mosquitoes

Gov: 4 Zika cases likely came from Florida mosquitoes | 29 July 2016 | Florida’s governor said Friday the state likely has the first cases of Zika transmitted by mosquitoes on the U.S. mainland. Gov.  Rick Scott said during a news conference in Orlanda that no mosquitoes  in the state have tested positive for Zika. But he said one woman and  three men in Miami-Dade and Broward counties likely contracted the virus  through mosquito bites. More than 1,650 Zika infections have been  reported in the U.S., but the four patients in Florida would be the  first not linked to travel outside the U.S. mainland.
