Originally posted by BBC BBC wrote:

Pregnant women have been warned to avoid the international tourist destination Miami Beach, amid cases of the Zika virus.

Authorities had previously thought the virus was limited to Wynwood, a small area west of Miami Beach.

Health officials now say five people in Miami Beach have been infected. Florida health officials have been aggressively spraying pesticides there.....

"We're in the midst of mosquito season and expect more Zika infections in the days and months to come," Tom Frieden from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Friday.

Florida has now had 36 cases of the disease, not counting those that were connected to travel outside the US.

Of course the political infighting has started.  More about that in the article, but that is hardly 'news'.
