CNN has learned there are now 41 members of the military who have been diagnosed with the Zika virus since testing began earlier this year.
Eight new cases have been recorded in the last week, a Pentagon official told CNN.
One of the military service members is a pregnant female. Under Pentagon health policies, female service members are permitted to move out of countries where Zika exists. …
The military tracks the number of cases reported among the ranks each week. Earlier Wednesday, the number stood at 33, but a new update has now been provided.
In addition, seven military dependents have been diagnosed with Zika, an increase of one case since the previous week.
The Pentagon said that all the exposures happened outside the US, but some of those who have had it or may currently have it may be in the United States, as there is no quarantine for Zika.
