It’s a good thing Obama is president… The media will give him a complete pass on this!
Miami Herald reported:

A Zika outbreak in Miami has led to 10 more local cases spread by mosquitoes in the same neighborhood north of downtown and identified last week as having been the source of the nation’s first locally transmitted cases, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced on Monday.

Scott said he called on the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to dispatch an emergency response team to Miami to help the state’s health department in their investigation of the local cases, believed to have been spread in a one-square-mile area in early July.

“Florida has a proven track record of success when it comes to managing similar mosquito-borne viruses,” Scott said in a written statement. “We will continue to keep our residents and visitors safe utilizing constant surveillance and aggressive strategies, such as increased mosquito spraying, that have allowed our state to fight similar viruses.”
