Cuba has reported its first case of the Zika virus to be transmitted inside the country.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers has the story:

The diagnosis puts an end to Cuba's status as one of the last nations in the hemisphere without domestic cases of the Zika virus.

A 21-year-old Havana woman who had not traveled outside Cuba was diagnosed with the virus after suffering headaches, fatigue and other symptoms, and tested positive for Zika on Monday.

Cuba had previously reported a few cases of the disease in people who had traveled to countries with outbreaks of the virus, and appeared to have contracted it abroad.

The country has thrown more than 9,000 soldiers, police, and university students into an effort to fumigate for mosquitoes, wipe out standing water where they breed, and prevent a Zika epidemic.
