MIAMI - The Zika virus will become endemic to Florida, the nation’s highest ranking infectious disease expert told Florida health officials earlier this week, according to a report in the Miami Herald. “Here’s the plain truth: that Zika and other diseases spread by Aedes aegypti [mosquito species] are really not controllable with current technologies. So we will see this become endemic,” Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. "What we anticipate will happen is that this season will calm down within the continental United States. We hope that Miami-Dade will stop having cases, but we can't promise that. [And] we will see parts of the hemisphere where it will be endemic. It will come back every year.” (Miami Herald)
