Rio Grande Valley health officials are refuting a report earlier today claiming there are people here infected with the ZIKA Virus.
Hidalgo and Cameron County Health administrators Eddie Olivares and Esmeralda Guajardo tell FOX 2 that the now-retracted report by a local media outlet was wrong and that there are no confirmed cases of ZIKA.
The report sourced a Houston pediatrician to have made the findings… Officials say Texas law requires doctors, labs, clinics and hospitals to report such cases to the state.
Officials predict there will be a ZIKA case in the valley in the future, encouraging everyone with a fever and body aches to see their doctor as a precaution. For the latest information on ZIKA you can visit www.cdc.gov
