More than 1,650 cases of Zika have been reported in USA states that were linked either with travel or having sex with a returned traveler, another way the virus can spread.

The CDC recommendspregnant women avoid traveling to Zika-affected areas which include countries ranging from Mexico into the Caribbean, Central American and South America.

First, someone in the area would need to have the virus and be bitten by a mosquito capable of transmitting the virus. As of July 28, the VDH has reported 50 cases of the Zika virus in the Commonwealth.
While the DOH continues to monitor the Zika situation, Park said, Hawaii residents can fight the bite to prevent the spread themselves. But experts cautioned that many questions about the virus remain.
