The Obama Administration says they will transfer money from the fight against Ebola to combat the Zika virus.

Roughly 75 percent of the $600 million will be devoted to CDC to focus on research.

The rest of the money will go to foreign aid accounts to fight virus overseas to treat those infected with the virus and those who are combating the mosquitoes that spread it.

President Obama asked the congress for $1.8 billion to help fight the virus back in February, but the request was stalled in the GOP-controlled congress.
