FLORIDA - Concerns are growing in Florida over the recent Zika outbreak.

Officials say there is a 15th case of Zika that was transmitted in Florida, but outside the Wynwood area where the previous cases were discovered.

Florida officials are carrying out extensive spraying in the areas where transmissions happened.

Florida’s governor says everything is being done to stop the outbreak.

Meanwhile, the war against mosquitoes is expanding in New York.

Thousands of tablets designed to kill mosquito larvae are being dropped in the city subways.

The move is an attempt to prevent the Zika-carrying mosquitoes from popping up in the New York subway system.
