Two babies born in California with Zika-related severe birth defect

Two babies born in California with Zika-related severe birth defect

Florida will provide free Zika testing for pregnant women at county health departments across the state, and health officials have recommended that any expecting mothers who visited the Wynwood area since mid-June should be tested. The public health department didn't disclose which country the woman is from.

Congress went on recess last month without approving emergency funding that President Obama requested back in February.

Scott said even though this is good news, they are still aggressively spraying for mosquitoes and testing residents. A woman infected with Zika can pass the disease to her fetus, stunting brain development and causing other severe defects.

"As we continue to see cases of Zika around the country, we want to make sure Alabama is prepared as possible to respond quickly, should the need arise", Bentley said in a prepared statement.

Officials are not releasing the locations where the births took place. "It will help reduce the number of mosquitoes we have", said Scott.

Hamilton approach to FIA over Hungary pole 'regrettable'- Lowe
Sebastian Vettel, making his first appearance on home soil in Ferrari colours, finished both sessions in third. He said he is feeling confident again.

As of Thursday, there were more than 970 pregnant women in the USA and its territories with evidence of Zika. "This mosquito can breed in a bottle cap". It is primarily spread through mosquitoes and can also be transmitted sexually. What is more concerning is recent research that suggests Zika can produce a higher rate of fetal anomalies than previously thought, he said.

The CDC will continue to monitor the entire one square mile area of Wynwood, just north of downtown Miami. Now, we don't know why that was.

Earlier this week, Frieden told reporters he was concerned that boots-on-the-ground mosquito control had not been as effective as expected-possibly because of insecticide resistance. When travel-related infections are identified, public health officials and mosquito control agencies are notified to help minimize the potential for local spread.

The Army is collaborating with outside partners to develop a Zika virus vaccine, according to the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research.
