Four individuals in Miami-Dade and Broward counties have been infected with the Zika virus by local https://www.viagrapascherfr.com/viagra-generique-prix-gel/ mosquitoes, Florida health officials said Friday. These are the first known cases of the virus being transmitted by mosquitoes in the continental United States.

“While no mosquitoes trapped tested positive for the Zika virus, the department believes these cases were likely transmitted through infected mosquitoes in this area,” according to a statement from the Florida Department of Health.

Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Friday, “all the evidence we have seen indicates that this is mosquito-borne transmission that occurred several weeks ago.”
