Dec 9 The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention and the Florida Department of Health said on Friday
that the Miami Beach area was no longer considered an active
Zika transmission zone.
The CDC said there had been no new cases of local Zika virus
transmission identified in South Miami Beach for more than 45
days, suggesting that the risk of infection was no longer
greater than in the rest of Miami-Dade County.
"Florida no longer has any identified areas with active Zika
transmission," Governor Rick Scott said in a statement.
