CDC is assisting in the investigation of a case of Zika in a Utah resident who is a family contact of the elderly Utah resident who died in late June. The deceased patient had traveled to an area with Zika and lab tests showed he had uniquely high amounts of virus—more than 100,000 times higher than seen in other samples of infected people—in his blood. State and local public health disease control specialists, along with CDC, are investigating how the second resident became infected. http://bit.ly/29Q9REK

Seventy years ago, in 1946, Malaria Control in War Areas, a program within the US Public Health Service, transitioned into the Communicable Disease Center (CDC) on July 1. That same year, the US became malaria-free. Learn more about CDC’s 70 year history: http://1.usa.gov/29axqXC

Outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases depend on many factors and are especially difficult to predict, prevent and control. The best way to prevent Aedes-borne diseases is to control mosquito populations and prevent mosquito bites. Watch a rebroadcast of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds session on Tuesday, July 19 at 1:00 pm ET. http://1.usa.gov/1rzB4JL
