The number of Indiana residents who brought the Zika virus back from overseas is more than previously believed.

The Indiana Department of Health says there have actually been 23 cases. It was previously reported to be only 15 cases.

The health department says the incorrect amount was due to a data issue. But health officials say even with the recent outbreak in Florida, Hoosiers are not at an increased risk of getting the virus.
