State investigates new Zika case outside Miami neighborhood

MIAMI

Zika case reported outside Miami zone

Florida health officials say they're investigating a new Zika case outside a Miami neighborhood where mosquitoes have spread the virus to over two dozen people.

The Florida Department of Health released a statement Friday announcing that its Zika caseload has risen to 28, with three new cases in Miami-Dade County.

Two of the people were exposed within a previously identified zone, a roughly 1-square-mile area encompassing Miami's Wynwood arts district.

The health department said the third infection is outside that zone in Miami-Dade County. Investigators and mosquito control inspectors will be working in that area, but no other details about the location or the patient were released.
