Zika Cases Reported In Colorado

By  | 

Two cases of Zika were confirmed in Colorado last month.

The state health department says both cases were reported last week, and both involve people who had traveled to a Zika-infected country. To date, these are the only two confirmed cases in Colorado this year. The health department warns that the state will likely have more cases pop up in 2016.

Zika is spread through a type of mosquito that does not live in Colorado.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment recommends visiting the CDC's website for more information about Zika-infected countries. We have included a link with this article.
