MIAMI – Congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson (FL-24) will make calls this week to residents living in the Wynwood, Overtown, and Little Haiti neighborhoods to alert them about confirmed mosquito-borne Zika virus transmissions in nearby Wynwood. Although the Zika-affected area is said to have a radius of only one square mile, it could easily spread to adjacent communities. Congresswoman Wilson is alerting the public in order to stop the spread of Zika through awareness and prevention to protect residents, their families, and their communities.
