LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Researchers at New Mexico State University will keep studying mosquitoes with the Zika virus. This, after the State Health Department, renewed their contract with the university.

There have been 10 reported cases of Zika in New Mexico. None of them got the virus in the state.
