Zika continues to be a problem in South Florida and Coral Springs. Zika has been found in Coral Springs and the City has been sprayed for the mosquitoes that carry this virus.
“Due to Hurricane Hermine, I cancelled my scheduled trip to Washington D.C. where I was supposed to meet with members of Congress today on funding for Zika. I am disappointed a bill which included funding for the Zika virus died today in the Senate. The Zika virus is a national issue and demands immediate federal action. I hope Congress and the President quickly agree on funding to combat Zika so we can protect pregnant women and their growing babies who are most harmed by this virus.” – Gov. Rick Scott
