Three mosquito samples found in Miami Beach have tested positive for the Zika virus
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Three mosquito samples found in Miami Beach have tested positive for the Zika virus, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said Thursday.
"This find is disappointing, but not surprising," Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam said. "Florida is among the best in the nation when it comes to mosquito surveillance and control, and this detection enables us to continue to effectively target our resources. Miami-Dade County, the city of Miami Beach and state and federal partners will continue to work aggressively to prevent the spread of Zika.
