  • Zika Virus

The first case of mosquito transmission of the Zika virus within the United States was reported in Hildago County, Texas, along the Mexican border on July 26 by state officials.

The infected patient's partner had recently travelled to Cuba and was ill with symptoms of Zika virus. Health officials also stressed that Zika can be sexually transmitted and precautions should be taken, especially if someone or their partner has traveled to an area where Zika is active.

It added that mosquito reduction activities are taking place across the state.

De La Haye has produced and starred in dozens of his own videos, some of which have garnered hundreds of thousands of views. De La Haye played in 23 games during his first two seasons with the program, serving as the team's kickoff specialist.

The Florida Department of Health made the announcement on Tuesday, and stressed that there is no evidence of Zika transmission through mosquitoes taking place anywhere in Florida.

Zika virus was first detected in Uganda in 1947, but infections were restricted to African monkeys. There are little to no symptoms and the virus can be transmitted sexually from an infected person. After infection, the Zika virus is present in blood and saliva for up to about two weeks, but it remains in bodily fluids like breast milk for weeks and semen for months.

The Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Department is participating in a mosquito surveillance program to ensure insects carrying the virus aren't in West Michigan. "But we're not seeing clinically apparent spread of Zika throughout the continental USA without the presence of the mosquitoes that carry the virus and our study helps to put into context some of the transmission risk".

A reporter for AFP said he had seen a number of bodies brought out of the mosque, leading to fears of a heavy death toll. A spokesman for the interior ministry had earlier said he suspected the explosion may have been caused by a auto bomb.

Although data are limited, it is generally accepted that sexual intercourse is one route for transmission of the Zika virus.

The majority of the 118 reported cases of Zika infection in Florida during 2017 have been related to travel to infected areas.
