JACKSON, Miss. (WHLT) — The Mississippi State Department of Health is reporting three new travel-related Zika cases.
This brings the state’s total to 14 travel-related cases.
“It’s important to remember that all of our cases that have been reported in Mississippi are travel related. It is crucial that pregnant women not travel to countries where Zika is actively being transmitted,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs.
The cases were a resident of Harrison County who recently traveled to Honduras and two Panola County residents who recently traveled to the Caribbean Island of Grenada.
