CDC Updates Maps on Zika Mosquito Potential Locations

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released new maps of the United States that show the potential location of the two species of mosquitoes associated with Zika virus transmission. The updated maps show where these mosquitoes are now or have been previously found within the continental United States, based on data gathered by CDC and its state and local partners, but do not show the numbers or density of mosquitoes within each area. While these maps do not indicate the risk of potential disease spread or risk of infection, they can help individuals and health care providers assess potential health risks and take appropriate precautions.
