With 10 New Zika Cases in Miami,
CDC Advises Pregnant Women to Avoid Wynwood

Federal health officials on Monday advised pregnant women to avoid a Miami neighborhood  marking the first time the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has warned against travel to any area within the continental United States  as a Zika outbreak in South Florida has led to 10 more local cases spread by mosquitoes.

.

The advisory extends to all expectant mothers, and women planning on becoming pregnant who have traveled to a one-square-mile area north of downtown Miami  including Wynwood, Midtown and the Design District  on or after June 15, said CDC Director Tom Frieden.

.

Pregnant women and their partners who live in the area are advised to take steps to avoid mosquito bites, such as using insect repellant with DEET, wearing long sleeves and pants, and using condoms to avoid sexual transmission of Zika. Frieden also advised that all expectant mothers who have traveled to the area in recent weeks be tested for the virus.

.

Perhaps most troubling, Frieden said, is that extensive spraying of insecticides in the area over the past several weeks has not reduced the local population of mosquitoes capable of transmitting Zika virus.

.

Its possible that the mosquitoes there are resistant to the insecticide thats been used, Frieden said. Its possible that there may be what we call cryptic breeding places.  This is a very difficult mosquito to control, particularly in a complex urban environment.

.

Friden said there are undoubtedly more infections in South Florida because only one in five people infected with Zika show symptoms, but he tempered his statement by noting that the Aedes aegypti species of mosquito most capable of transmitting the virus typically does not travel more than 150 meters  about 500 feet  in its lifetime.

.

Nothing that we’ve seen indicates widespread transmission, he said, but its certainly possible there could be sustained transmission in small areas.

.

The new cases in Miami, a major entry port for people traveling from countries and U.S. territories with active Zika transmission, triggered warnings from public health officials in England and elsewhere.

Among the 10 new local Zika cases reported on Monday, six were asymptomatic and were identified from the door-to-door community survey that the states health department is conducting. In total, Florida has reported 14 local Zika cases  12 in Miami-Dade and two in Broward including two women and 12 men.
