The CDC sounds the alarm today for Pregnant women. The Center for Disease and Control is warning pregnant women that they should not travel to an area of Miami Beach where local Zika virus transmission has been confirmed. This is in addition to a previously identified area of transmission north of downtown Miami.
The agency advised those who have traveled to this area since July 14 to be aware that active transmission of the virus is occurring. Pregnant women should talk to their health care providers about testing, and anyone with a partner who is pregnant should follow recommendations to prevent sexual transmission of the virus. Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced Friday that five locally transmitted cases of the Zika virus have been confirmed in an area of Miami Beach. CONTINUE
