San Benito (KFXV) — The first case of zika virus has been confirmed in the city.
Reports say a pregnant woman contracted the mosquito borne illness while traveling back and forth between Mexico and the United States.
Authorities on both sides of the border are coordinating efforts to control the spread of the virus on both sides on the border. Officials warn being so close to another country, it’s important that we work together so that we can assure that we do not miss a case that can affect both countries.
