    HAVANA (AP) — Cuba says it has diagnosed the Zika virus in two people
    who appear to have contracted it inside the country, which has been
    largely successful in controlling the disease.

    The Health Ministry said the cases were discovered Monday in the eastern
    city of Holguin and had been confirmed as Zika by laboratory tests. The
    ministry says neither patient had traveled outside the country.

    Cuba has been quarantining travelers who arrive with Zika and spraying
    heavily for mosquitoes, strategies that kept the number of cases of the
    disease contracted inside Cuba to one before the announcement late
    Wednesday.

    The government said the two patients were recovering well and their
    neighborhood was being subjected to intense investigation and spraying
    for mosquitoes.
