TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – Florida health officials are reporting the first sexually transmitted case of Zika in Miami-Dade County.

Florida’s Department of Health said Friday while the individual did not travel, their partner had recently traveled to several areas where Zika transmission could occur, including Cuba, an area with ongoing active transmission of Zika.

Both individuals have tested positive for Zika.

Health officials stress there is no evidence of ongoing, active transmission of Zika anywhere in Florida.

The total number of Zika cases in Florida in 2017 is 205.

    1. You obviously didn’t understand the news written here.

  4. Lots of assumptions here.
    According to the news here she was already positive when she came back to FL. All it would take is for any of the transmitting mosquitoes to bite her and her partner. Very simple.
    That bite does not itch, it’s very hard to know if you’ve been bitten.
