HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania is getting about $1.8 million from the federal government to help fight the Zika virus.

The Centers for Disease Control said the money will help prevent the disease and address the health problems that it brings, including the birth defect microcephaly.

The support is part of some $60 million going out across the United States to monitor the disease, control mosquitoes and create more laboratory capacity.

The money will be available at the start of August.
