More Locally Transmitted Zika Cases in Texas

More Locally Transmitted Zika Cases in Texas

Though the investigation is ongoing, the infections were likely acquired in that immediate area. Testing of people living in an eight-block area around the homes of the identified cases continues but has yet to show any additional evidence of Zika transmission in the rest of that larger area. The Texas Department of State Health Services said Friday that the new cases were identified in tests conducted after her infection was uncovered. Brazilian and Yale School of Public Health researchers had reported early during the microcephaly epidemic that the virus also causes severe lesions in the retina - the posterior portion of the eye. While the spread of the Zika virus in the USA is not classified as an outbreak, according to the University of Arizona's Master of Public Health department, it is critical that we understand more about the virus and how to stop it from spreading further.

Colder weather is likely to thank for a decrease in mosquite activity, according to a health official. "However, winters are mild in southern Texas, and mosquito populations can rebound even during short periods of warmer weather". Use repellent and wear protective clothing to avoid mosquito bites.

Wearing long trousers and long-sleeved shirts that cover exposed skin.

There was no local transmission of Zika virus in Kentucky during the 2016 mosquito season. For Cameron County, the benefit will be in place indefinitely as state health officials collect more information about the scope of transmission in Texas.

Zika is primarily transmitted to humans by mosquitoes that have previously bitten an infected person, though sexual transmission can also occur.

None of those infected are pregnant. CDC recommends men who have traveled to a Zika-affected area and developed symptoms consistent with Zika during travel or two weeks after travel to use condoms for six months after symptoms begin or to abstain from sex for 6 months.
