TAMPA -- Another case of Zika virus was reported Wednesday in Hillsborough County.

The latest case was brought here through travel, according to the Florida Department of Health. It's the sixth travel-related Zika case in Hillsborough County, and one of 220 statewide.

Pinellas County has had six travel-related cases while Pasco County has had four, according to the health department, which said another 43 pregnant women in Florida are being monitored for the virus. Those cases aren't broken down by county.

The virus causes symptoms that generally last from seven to 10 days, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are still no confirmations of locally acquired Zika cases in Florida.
