CDC: Three Zika Cases Confirmed in Miami-Dade

Three more cases of the virus...locally acquired in Miami-Dade - two infections dating to October 2016 and the first one of 2017. State health officials say the blood donor had “multiple exposures in Miami-Dade,” and while likely contracting Zika in 2016, the sample was collected this year, so they're classifying it as the first of 2017.

 

While this seems isolated, the CDC just released a study providing more evidence that Zika causes microcephaly, a birth defect where the baby’s head is smaller than expected, and other neurological disorders in babies born to women infected with the virus.
