The Little River area of Miami is now free of active Zika transmission after no new cases were reported in the last 45 days, officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today.
It was the last area in Miami to have ongoing locally transmitted Zika virus.
"I am proud to announce that the Little River area has been cleared of any ongoing active transmission of the Zika virus," he said in a statement today. "It is crucial that everyone remains vigilant and continues to do their part to wear bug spray and dump standing water so we can keep these areas clear, especially for pregnant women and their developing babies."
However, the Zika outbreak is not yet over in Florida, since the South Beach area of Miami Beach, a city separate from Miami, is still monitoring for local Zika transmission.
Florida has been grappling with the Zika outbreak centered in southern Florida since July of this year. There have been 244 cases of locally acquired Zika virus reported in Florida since the outbreak began.
