|By:, SA News Editor

U.S. government researchers have begun their first clinical trial of a Zika vaccine while the Obama administration told lawmakers funds to fight the virus would run out in the coming weeks due to congressional inaction.

The number of locally spread Zika cases has jumped to 15 in Florida and the amount of U.S. states affected has reached 45. As of July 27, 1,658 travel associated cases of Zika were reported across the continental U.S. and Hawaii.
