Officials in Miami-Dade have been testing mosquitoes in the small area of southern Florida where the four cases are locatedFour cases of Zika virus in Florida are likely the first to be transmitted locally by mosquitoes in the United States, officials said Friday, marking a new phase in the fast-growing pandemic. Until now, more than 1,600 cases of Zika -- which can cause birth defects -- have been recorded in the mainland United States but most were brought in by people who had become infected while traveling, with a smaller number transmitted by sexual contact. In the past two weeks, investigators have determined "a high likelihood exists" that four suspected non-travel cases in Miami-Dade and Broward County "are the result of local transmission," said the Florida Department of Health in a statement.
