Recent numbers on Zika Infections
Although a large-scale Zika outbreak is not likely in the United States, leading health officials have warned that localized infections are probable in the months ahead, particularly across the South, as warmer temperatures create hospitable climate conditions for disease-carrying mosquitoes. As of May 2016, all confirmed infections in the United States have been associated with travelers who visited countries with known Zika outbreaks.
