On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton toured the Borinquen Medical Center in Miami, Florida. The area surrounding the clinic is known to have a population of Zika-carrying mosquitoes, and to date, 21 cases of the virus have been reported in the area. Clinton gave brief remarks following her tour in which she called on Congress to pass emergency funding to combat Zika. The funding would be used to continue development of a vaccine and to spray for the disease carrying mosquitoes. A video of Clinton’s remarks is below.
