In 2016 the National Institutes of Health conducted a saliva study after officials were concerned by a case of Zika transmission between an elderly man and his caretaker son in Utah that ruled out better-understood routes like mosquito bites or sexual activity.

Health officials say the infected person did not contract the disease in the state, but contracted it from a partner who recently went on a trip to Cuba. They also mentioned that both individuals were already tested positive for Zika.

Mosquito control is responding to the neighborhood.

There have been 118 Zika virus cases reported in Florida, officials said.

Health officials said the state has not had any cases of the virus being spread through mosquitoes in 2017. Zika virus is among the viruses spead by the species. There are little to no symptoms and the virus can be transmitted sexually from an infected person. An additional 28 Zika infections with exposure in 2016 but tested this year also have been reported, including six locally acquired cases and 22 with undetermined exposure.

"For other states, particularly here in the south where we have mosquito populations where this is some risk of local transmission". After infection, the Zika virus is present in blood and saliva for up to about two weeks, but it remains in bodily fluids like breast milk for weeks and semen for months.

The Florida Department of Health announced in a statement Tuesday that the case was reported in Pinellas County. Ninety of the cases are travel-related infections.

Zika virus is a flavivirus transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, which are found throughout much of the Americas and are also responsible for the transmission of dengue fever and chikungunya fever. When Zika virus is contracted by women in the early stages of pregnancy it may interfere with brain development in the embryo, causing the baby to be born with an undersized brain (microcephaly).
