The Obama administration is expected to announce it will transfer funds left over the fight against Ebola to the fight against the Zika virus.
The administration expects to send 75% of the $600 million to the Center for Disease Control.
The CDC will use the funds to research and develop Anti-Zika vaccines, treat people infected with the virus and fight the mosquitoes that spread the virus.
The rest of the money will go toward fighting the virus overseas.
Researchers believe there may be a link between Zika and Microcephaly which is a debilitating neurological birth defect in which a baby’s head is too small as well as other serious complications.
President Obama asked for $1.9 billion in emergency funds to fight Zika back in February, but the request is stuck in the Republican controlled Congress.
