PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health confirms the first Zika-related microcephaly birth in Florida.
The birth mother is a Haitian national who came to Florida to give birth. She was infected with the Zika virus in Haiti.
Officials will not disclose the hospital where the woman gave birth.
Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Surgeon General Celeste Philip participated in a Zika roundtable discussion in Palm Beach County Tuesday morning to discuss the issue.
“I’ve asked the CDC to do another phone call with all of our health care providers so they can continue to educate the public,” Scott said. “You heard just in our conversation here: the most important thing is all of us are responsible. We’ve got to get rid of the standing water so we don’t have these mosquitoes breed in our yard or anywhere we are. If we can stop the mosquitoes, we can make sure that we don’t have an expansion of more Zika cases in our state.”
