Researcher Infected with Zika in Lab Accident

"If the President wants to risk the health of pregnant women and all Texans because he wants to allow men in the bathroom then he ought to be impeached", Patrick said. More than 1,100 people have been diagnosed with Zika in Puerto Rico, including 146 pregnant women, where the disease is spreading among local mosquitoes, according to the CDC.

The CDC researchers and Colorado State University also shared a new map showing the spread of the Zika-carrying Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes in the USA, reports of which have jumped from 183 counties from 26 states to 1,241 counties from 40 states between January 1995 and March 2016. "Confirmation of a causal link between infection and microcephaly has transformed the profile of Zika from a mild disease to a devastating diagnosis for pregnant women and a significant threat to global health".

A United States laboratory researcher was back at work after contracting the Zika virus by pricking herself with a needle during an experiment last month, broadcaster ABC News said on Thursday.

Florida's congressional delegation will hold a meeting next week in Washington to receive presentations about the Zika virus, with panelists expected to include Tom Frieden, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She returned to work five days later when she no longer had a fever. Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, and Jane Nelson, R-Flower Mound, penned a letter to the state's congressional delegation and the Obama administration, saying Texas desperately needs federal funding to combat the Zika virus after recent floods.

The Senate voted Wednesday to move ahead with negotiations with the House on a measure to fund the government's fight against the Zika virus. The task for lawmakers is to reconcile the $1.1 billion Senate bill with a $622 million version covering the current fiscal year from the House.
