Earlier, he met with members of the Wynwood business improvement district to brief them on what is being done.

“We’re going to be getting some aerial spraying of a ten square mile area. Wynwood will be the center of that 10 square mile for adulticide that kills the adult mosquito,” said Gimenez.

The mayor zeroed in on a location where the Zika transmissions might have occurred.

“I would think they were probably residents. We’ll check up on that. If they’re residents, that’s not really about a location or business location. It’s more about time to an area,” said Gimenez.

He says the virus appears to be contained to Wynwood.

“The state has been testing in the border areas of Wynwood and the good news is they got some urine samples from a number of people that gives them urine samples and we found nobody was infected, ” said Gimenez.
