From WPTV: Florida Governor Rick Scott told reporters that 20,000 samples have been taken of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, but not one tested positive for carrying the Zika virus.

The samples were collected from across the state, but none were sent from Martin County.

Steve Noe, Martin County Mosquito Control’s project manager, said the department doesn’t have the resources to do the job.

“If you’re able to have a full-time lab technician to process all of the data and special packaging– it’s hours and hours of manpower,” Noe said.
