New Zika zone identified in Miami’s Little River area

At least five people have contracted Zika virus from mosquitoes in Miami’s Little River neighborhood, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced on Thursday, identifying a one-square-mile zone where the disease is spreading — between Northwest 79th and 63rd Streets from Northwest 10th Avenue to North Miami Avenue.

Scott’s office issued a press release identifying the area after the Florida Department of Health confirmed that two women and three men had contracted Zika. Three of the people live in the one-square-mile area, and two either work there or recently visited, according to the governor’s announcement.
