Here’s Really Where Zika Mosquitoes Are Likely In The U.S.
National Public Radio

A few months ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a startling map that showed the parts of the U.S. that could harbor mosquitoes capable of carrying Zika.

Many readers, including myself, thought, “Zika could come to my town! It could come to Connecticut! To Ohio and Indiana! Or to northern California! Oh goodness!”

The map made it look like a vast swath of the country was at risk for Zika, including New England and the Upper Midwest. Well, not quite.

On Thursday, CDC scientists published another mosquito map for the U.S. And it paints a very different picture.
