Clay County has its third case of the Zika virus, a mosquito-borne illness that has sickened 282 people in Florida, according to the state Department of Health.

He said much of the work surrounding the Zika virus has gone on behind doors, with planning meetings, aggressive testing of mosquitos, especially downstate, and a public relations push to alert pregnant women who are traveling.

Dallas County officials said last month that 10 pregnant women tested positive for Zika, but it's possible the women were infected with dengue fever or chikungunya instead. In a country of just 6 million people, the seemingly sudden rise of this health crisis seized those expecting or attempting to get pregnant with fears of devastating fetal defects like microcephaly, hearing loss and impaired growth. The Zika virus spreads through an infected mosquito bite and can pass from an infected person through sexual intercourse. "This is an isolated case ... an import one", said Laurentiu Colintineanu, spokesman for the health ministry. The eleventh contracted it through sexual contact with someone who traveled.

According to CDC guidelines, pregnant women and their male partners who have travelled to a Zika-affected area should either abstain or consistently use condoms for the duration of the pregnancy. Epidemiologists have calculated that the chance of contracting Zika virus while traveling to Brazil this summer (winter in Brazil) is low, though not impossible.

As more information is released, the graphic will be expanded.

There is still no vaccine for Zika virus.
