Condom prices in Puerto Rico are cheap and aren't going up any time soon.

The government of Puerto Rico has ordered a price freeze on condoms in an effort to prevent the spread of the Zika virus.

Any store that hikes prices to try to capitalize on people's fears of the virus will be fined up to $10,000. Other items on the price-freeze list: insect repellent, hand sanitizer and tissues.

Puerto Rico has had 9 confirmed cases of the Zika virus so far, according to the Centers for Disease Control. That's more than any other state or U.S. territory. Puerto Rico's Department of Health says there have been 63 confirmed cases, including three pregnant women. The island's governor has declared a public health emergency.

It's just one of many crises in Puerto Rico right now. Home values are plunging on the island, people are fleeing because of the terrible economy, and the government is massively in debt.
