The world's Zika emergency, is officially over, at least for now.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Miami:

The World Health Organization, which is part of the U.N., is ending it's emergency response to the global Zika crisis, but says the virus, blamed for thousands of cases of birth defects of babies born to infected mothers and suspected in a spike of cases of neurological disease in adults is going to require a long-term approach with regards to funding a response and research.

A W.H.O. official tells reporters, 'Zika is here to stay'. Health officials here in Florida just now announced four more locally-acquired infections in Miami-Dade County and that Florida has 160 pregnant women who've tested positive.
