Sen. Schumer calls for ‘Zika czar’ to stop virus
Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling on the White House to appoint a so-called "Zika czar" to help coordinate the fight against the disease.
This comes after three cases of Zika virus have been found in the Hudson Valley.
Health officials say the confirmed cases were of patients that had traveled outside of the country.
Medical experts say the mosquito-spread virus is linked to severe brain defects in newborn babies.
