Four people in Florida have likely been infected with the Zika virus through local mosquitoes, said Governor Rick Scott. The three men and one woman were located in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, Scott said on Friday. "Florida has become the first state in our country to have a local transmission of the Zika virus," he said. Scott emphasized, however, that there were no suspected locally transmitted cases in other areas of Florida and that no mosquitoes have on their own tested positive for the virus in the state. The state's health department "is aggressively testing people in this area to ensure there are no other cases," Scott said. "If you live in this area and want to be tested, I urge you to contact the county health department which stands ready to assist you."
