Florida reports 1st locally acquired Zika case of year in Manatee County

A locally transmitted case of Zika has been found in Manatee County, the Florida Department of Health said Thursday. Evidence from a later investigation suggested that after that partner acquired Zika in Cuba, a mosquito in or near their home bit the infected partner and then later bit and transmitted the virus to the other partner, the health department said.

The person that acquired Zika in Cuba was not tested for Zika while they had symptoms.

Whatever happened to the Zika epidemic? Manatee County's mosquito control has been notified and frequent treatment for mosquitoes will continue.

Officials say there's no evidence of ongoing, active transmission along Florida's Gulf coast, or anywhere in the state.

The total number of Zika cases in Florida in 2017 is 187.

Florida reported 296 locally acquired Zika infections a year ago.

For those who have traveled to areas with Zika, precautions should be made to avoid mosquito bites for at least three weeks upon returning home, the health department said. However, health officials still warn Floridians to be diligent about removing standing water from around their homes and using mosquito repellents. Condoms should be used to lower the chances of sexual transmission of the virus, and pregnant couples are advised to use them during the entire pregnancy.
