Over the holiday weekend, the state health department said the CDC confirmed the first case of Zika in Charlotte County.

The CDC called it a travel-related case.

Charlotte County Mosquito Control responded with an extra round of work to prevent the virus from infecting the county’s insects.

The CDC confirmed 10 other cases statewide, bringing Florida’s total to 246.

Zika causes flu-like symptoms like red eyes, rash, fever, malaise, and joint and muscle pain.

The symptoms can last seven to 10 days.

Zika presents a particularly tough problem for pregnant women, and it has links to cases of babies with heads smaller than normal.
