First Travel-Related Case of Zika Virus Reported in Hawaii

State health officials as of Wednesday, Florida had 1,014 cases of the virus, 733 of them stemming from travel to parts of the world where Zika is widespread, such as the Caribbean and South America. They also say that women who aren't pregnant but who are of child-bearing age and travel to these areas or have a partner who travels to them should talk with health care providers about pregnancy plans and take steps to avoid unintended pregnancies, including correctly using condoms.

According to health officials, while the number of confirmed cases continues to grow, there has been a downward trend in new cases for more than five weeks.

In Singapore, 400 cases of Zika have been reported, while Vietnam, Philippines, and Malaysia have 20 each. Such cross-reactions also make diagnosis of Zika infection unreliable, and could thus facilitate the spread of the virus.
