In other news, in Europe, France’s health ministry said Friday it had confirmed the first confirmed case of the virus in France.
Officials said the patient is from southern France, where the disease was first discovered in 2010.
The virus was first detected in southern France in May, and more than a month later, the first reported cases in southern and central France were confirmed.
The French health ministry had earlier said the case was a case of suspected Zika virus, and that it was not the first known case of Zika in France that had not been confirmed.
More to come.
