NEW ZIKA CASES ARISE IN U.S.
Up till this point, Zika has been a distant threat, one that has remained relatively contained to South America. However, recent findings indicate that the danger is becoming increasingly prominent. Florida Governor Rick Scott, in a statement on Friday, confirmed the existence of four new cases of the Zika virus in the Sunshine State. While there have been thousands of confirmed cases throughout the United States, all have been travel or lab related. However, these recent homegrown cases are cause for concern. Experts believe Congress must move quickly in order to prevent the spread of Zika.
