    Secretary of Health to Host Media Call Regarding First Positive Cases of Zika Virus Confirmed in Two Pennsylvanians who Traveled to Outbreak-Affected Countries

    ...
    The Pennsylvania Department of Health today announced the first confirmed cases of Zika virus in two residents who recently traveled to countries affected by the ongoing outbreak of the disease.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) laboratories confirmed the illnesses in two female Pennsylvania residents. The department will not provide additional details about the cases to protect the privacy of the individuals.

    “While we are concerned about the health of these individuals and any Pennsylvanian who may be exposed to Zika virus, we want to emphasize that these cases pose no threat to the public,” said Secretary of Health Dr. Karen Murphy. “We will continue to provide updated Zika guidance to health care professionals across the commonwealth to ensure they are aware of the symptoms associated with the disease and the protocols that should be followed to ensure testing of potentially infected individuals, if needed.”

            Montco Reports First Zika Virus Case

            Norristown, PA (March 8, 2016) – The Montgomery County Health Department (MCHD) today
            announced confirmation of the first case of Zika virus in the county. A 55-year-old woman tested
            positive for the virus, following travel outside of the United States to an area where Zika virus has
            been found. There are now six confirmed cases of Zika virus in Pennsylvania,
            according to the state
            Department of Health.

            “The Zika virus is generally a mild virus that lasts less than a week,” said Montgomery County
            Commissioner Val Arkoosh, who is also a physician and is Interim Medical Director of the Montgomery
            County Health Department. “The CDC, the state health department, and our county health
            department are fully prepared for cases of Zika virus, which is important to note, cannot be
            transmitted through casual contact. We want to strongly encourage our residents to focus on
            mosquito bite prevention, if they travel to countries that are affected by the ongoing outbreak. It is also
            important to talk with your healthcare provider about travel if you are pregnant or planning to become
            pregnant.”
