Zika Virus Found in Pennsylvania

Another case of Zika has been confirmed at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. School officials say a student contracted the virus during their winter break abroad. “We have been informed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health that one of our students who traveled abroad over the winter break has tested positive for the Zika virus. We are grateful to be able to report that the student has recovered and is feeling well,” says a statement released on the school’s website. Experts say chances of an outbreak in the area are minimal, because the type of mosquitos that carry the virus are not native to that part of the country.
