New Zika Case In the Bay Area

The Florida Department of Health says there' is now a locally transmitted case of the Zika virus in Manatee County.  

But the health department adds that there is no evidence of an ongoing transmission of the mosquito-borne virus, so the case does not warrant establishing a Zika zone.  

The state health department says a couple traveled to Cuba.  One had symptoms of Zika after they traveled there.  Upon their return to Manatee County, a mosquito bit the infected person, then bit and infected the partner.  

There've been 187 confirmed cases of Zika in Florida this year with the majority being travel-related.
