The Orlando Sentinel reports that several non-travel-related Zika cases have been found in Florida in the last few weeks. Some of these were in Miami Beach and Pinellas County.

The Zika virus is spread by mosquitoes and was first reported in Brazil. Pregnant women have been advised to be careful of traveling to places where Zika has been found, as the disease can cause birth defects in unborn babies. لعبة عجلة النقود
