Public health officials are scrambling to stop the spread of the Zika virus now that infected mosquitoes have likely made it to the U.S.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel warning for Wynwood, Florida, just north of Miami, after 10 more people contracted Zika, likely from mosquito bites in the U.S.
On Friday, Gov. Rick Scott announced Florida was the first state where Zika was spread locally by infected mosquitoes. The CDC now suspects at least 14 people contracted the virus in the U.S., but the real number could be much higher.
