Subject: Pool Report #3 - Zika update
From White House official:
"This evening, before departing for Philadelphia, the President received an update from his Deputy Homeland Security Advisor Amy Pope on the potential cases of non-travel related Zika announced by the Florida Department of Health earlier today. CDC continues to closely coordinate with the State of Florida and the Administration has offered Federal support and technical assistance for Florida's ongoing case investigation and mosquito control efforts. As the President said last week in his call with Governor Rick Scott, Florida has a strong record of responding aggressively to local outbreaks of mosquito-borne viruses like Zika. The President asked to be kept up to date on any new developments and continues to highlight that congressional action is needed to ensure that federal, state and local public health officials have all the resources they need to fight Zika."
