BROOKLYN - Public health officials have confirmed at least 233 cases of the Zika virus in New York City.

Health officials expect that number to rise in the coming months as more people travel to and from the Carribean and Latin America.

The Department of Health commissioner says more than half the cases of Zika are from people who recently arrived in New York City from the Dominican Republic.

Twenty cases were detected in people arriving from Puerto Rico, and 14 from those who visited from Guyana.
