There have been a total of 18 travel-related cases of the Zika virus in Virginia, according to the Center for Disease Control. Two of those cases are in the northwest region, one in the eastern, four in the central and two in the southwest region. It is important to note that these are all travel related cases, and nobody in the United States has contracted the virus due to a mosquito bite.
“For more information about the Zika virus, Dr. Kartchner and Daniel Ferrell, VDH’s Rappahannock-Rapidan district epidemiologist, will give a presentation during the Culpeper County Board of Supervisors on June 7 at 10 a.m. and to the Madison County Board of Supervisors on June 14 at 4 p.m.”
