Vast Majority Of California Counties Not Infested By Zika Mosquito
KQED has created a map to show where the mosquito has been found in the state.
Here’s Where Zika Mosquitoes Are Likely Found In California
The first thing to know about the mosquito that can carry Zika is that it is not widespread in California. Most of California’s 58 counties do not have — and have never had — any infestation of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the most worrisome carrier when it comes to Zika. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has crunched data from across the country and created a national map showing where the Aedes aegypti mosquito has been found any time over the past two decades. We asked CDC for the county-specific data in California. Click on the map above to see how your county fares. (Aliferis, 6/30)
