FEMA announced Tuesday that a Texas man was infected by Zika virus, which was confirmed by tests and confirmed by the U.S. Health and Human Services, which said it will p코인 카지노rovide a list of possible mosquito-borne diseases for a public-health response.
The outbreak began in March 2016 and spread to 18 states and Puerto Rico.
State health officials did not release specifics Tuesday, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in Miami, said the man had traveled to Venezuela and, later, Mexico.

But the virus can be transmitted through certain close contact with an infected person and by sharing towels, bedding, toys and bedding with others who also have symptoms of Zika, according to CDC.
