Zika Virus Found in Common U.S. Mosquito

A recent front-page story in the Washington Post reported that researchers have detected the Zika virus in Aedes albopictus, a common mosquito that can be found as far north as New England. This greatly increases the number of U.S. states at risk for transmission of the disease. This discovery was reported by the Pan American Health Organization after the virus was detected in Asian tiger mosquitos in Mexico.
