    The press release references information from the Institut de Veille Sanitaire (INVS) in the statement that circulation of Zika virus has not been proven in St Barth ("Conformément au dernier point épidémiologique… aucune circulation du virus ZIKA n'est averee dans la Collectivité de Saint Barthélemy").

    The INVS, in its most recent point épidémiologique (1/28/16), notes difficulties related to identifying Zika cases in the setting of the ongoing dengue epidemic:

    "A Saint-Barthélemy, aucun cas de Zika confirmé biologiquement n’a été signalé à ce jour. Sur ce territoire, l’épidémie de dengue (sérotype DENV1) se poursuit depuis la semaine 2016-01. Ce phénomène rend plus difficile le repérage clinique de cas suspects de Zika."

    In Saint-Barthélemy, no case of laboratory confirmed Zika has been reported to date. In this territory, the dengue epidemic (serotype DENV1) continues since the 2016-01 week. This makes clinical identification of suspected cases of Zika difficult.

    The INVS has been consistent in mentioning this difficulty.
