MIAMI (AP) -- Pregnant women living in Miami's Zika hot zone are worried. Many are anxiously flooding doctors' offices to be tested for the mosquito-borne virus that can cause ghastly birth defects.
Health officials are warning expectant mothers to avoid the city's Wynwood neighborhood, where at least 15 people are believed to have contracted Zika from mosquito bites in the first such cases on record in the U.S.
But for pregnant women who actually live in the neighborhood, that's easier said than done.
A four-months-pregnant Jessica Ardente says it's scary. But she wants to stay in her home. So she's using bug spray, wearing long sleeves and long pants in the summer heat, and working out indoors.
