WASHINGTON — Public health officials said Monday they've learned a lot more about Zika since the Obama administration made a $1.9 billion request to Congress to combat the mosquito-borne virus, and are increasingly concerned about its potential impact on the United States.
"Most of what we've learned is not reassuring," said Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Everything we know about this virus seems to be scarier than we initially thought."
She said the virus has been linked to a broader array of birth defects throughout a longer period of pregnancy. The potential geographic range of the mosquitoes transmitting the virus also reaches farther northward, and now includes 30 states. And it can be spread sexually, causing the CDC to update its guidance to couples.
But researchers don't know how many babies of women infected with Zika will end up with birth defects, or what drugs and vaccines may be effective.

"This is a very unusual virus that we can't pretend to know everything about it that we need to know," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The assessment, delivered to reporters at the White House Monday, comes the week after the White House informed Congress it was moving more than $510 million previously earmarked for Ebola prevention toward Zika prevention efforts.
Congressional Republicans accused the White House of trying to "politicize" Zika. "We’re glad the administration has agreed to our request to use existing Ebola funds to address the Zika epidemic," said Doug Andes, a spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. "If additional Zika resources are needed those funds could and should be addressed through the regular appropriations process."
"We can't just stop and wait for the money. If we don't get the money the president has asked for, we're not going to take it to the point we need," Fauci said. "When the president asked for $1.9 billion, we needed $1.9 billion."
The Centers for Disease Control announced Monday it was providing $3.9 million in emergency Zika funding to Puerto Rico. saying the number of cases there is doubling every week and could reach into the hundreds of thousands. The money will go to increased laboratory capacity.
