More cases of the Zika virus are being reported by the Florida Department of Health, including two new travel-related cases in Palm Beach County and one in St. Lucie County.

There is a new non-travel related case being investigated in Miami-Dade County.

That’s despite the fact that the Miami-Dade County mosquito control director says the insect's population is dropping in the Miami neighborhood health officials have linked to Zika infections.
