CDC: More Than 50 Minnesotans Infected With Zika

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Health officials say the number of Minnesotans infected with Zika virus has topped 50.

The Centers for Disease Control announced Thursday that 53 people in the state have gotten the mosquito-borne disease.

None of the infections were caught locally, and none of them are associated with death, pregnancies or birth defects.

While the number of Minnesota cases accounts for 1 percent of known cases in the U.S., the state has had more Zika infections than all of its neighbors.
