Shames said there have been about 31 confirmed cases in the United States, and all have been from individuals who have traveled outside of the country.
Shames emphasized that this is a tropical disease, and although global warming trends have brought tropical diseases to Southern Oregon before, the disease's potential impact in the area is far away.
