Three men and a woman in Florida became infected with the Zika virus, likely after being bitten by mosquitoes in the area, officials said today (July 29). The cases, which are in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, mark the first time that anyone has caught Zika from mosquitoes in the United States. The patients did not travel to another country where Zika is spreading, and did not have sex with a person who had Zika, ruling out these routes of transmission, officials said.
