Worldwide fears are increasing that the Zika virus, one that primarily hits newborn children, will become a major pandemic over the coming months..
And this tonight developing in New York City:
RSOE EDIS Event Report – A third case of the Zika virus has been confirmed in the Big Apple – in a pregnant woman who contracted the mosquito-borne infection while traveling overseas. City health officials, after revealing the new case Thursday, sought to calm fears by emphasizing that there’s no risk of acquiring the virus in the five boroughs. The sickened New Yorkers all returned from countries in the Caribbean and Latin America struggling to contend with the rapidly escalating Zika outbreak. The mosquitoes suspected of carrying the disease are not found in New York, officials said.
