Delaware health officials Friday announced a fourth confirmed case of the Zika virus in the state, once again caused by an individual traveling abroad and acquiring the disease via a mosquito bite. 

The fourth case is a man in Kent County who traveled abroad in May. That is all Division of Public Health officials would release on the matter. 

Two women and a man, all from New Castle County, were the first cases, confirmed in February and March. 

Officials said there have been no confirmed cases in the state of a mosquito biting an infected individual and then transferring Zika to another individual. 

The virus can also be spread by men via oral, vaginal, and anal sex.
