|Florida Gov. Rick Scott confirmed that as many as 14 people in South Florida have contracted the Zika virus after being bitten locally by infected mosquitoes. The Governor’s announcement vaulted responses from public health agencies and elected officials. Federal health officials relayed that this cluster of infections is the first time the virus has been spread locally in the continental United States. The virus has spread significantly in the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, where it could potentially affect some 10,000 pregnancies this year alone.
Health officials have anticipated Zika’s arrival in the continental United States since last fall. The confirmation that local mosquitoes have transmitted Zika in Florida echoed like a starter’s pistol in Congress, which left on its summer recess without passing legislation to fully fund efforts to combat Zika. Florida Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) is urging Congress to sprint back to Washington to reconvene in an emergency session. The House and Senate are not expected to return until after Labor Day.
Daunting efforts to control the spread of the disease are underway. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has halted blood donation in South Florida. The most recent Zika studies suggest that a pool of 1.65 million childbearing women in Central and South America could be exposed to the virus by the end of the epidemic’s first wave. Across the Atlantic, British health officials issued travel bans for women who are pregnant or who could become pregnant while in Florida. Yet, health officials in Rio de Janeiro, the host city for this week’s 2016 Olympic Games, said that Zika should not deter travelers from coming to the Games, because cases of the virus had dipped significantly in recent months. We will continue to monitor this story as it develops.
