A spokeswoman at Fort Bragg says there have been five travel-related cases of the Zika virus confirmed since June at the North Carolina Army post.

Spokeswoman Elizabeth Gerhart said Tuesday the five cases involved service members or retired military members who traveled outside the U.S., and none has experienced any Zika-related complication Gerhart said none of the cases involved pregnant women.

Gerhart said there are no indications that the cases pose threats to the local population. She said the cases do serve as a reminder for people to protect themselves against mosquito bites.
