March 19, 2016 - Uncategorized



The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has added Cuba to its list of countries and territories where Zika virus is spreading after a local case was confirmed.

The first case of local transmission of Zika virus in the country was confirmed Tuesday: State media reported a 21-year-old Havana woman who had not traveled outside of Cuba was diagnosed after suffering symptoms of Zika, NBC News reported.

Cuba was one of a handful of countries that had previously only reported cases contracted while traveling abroad.
