First Case Of Sexually Transmitted Zika Virus Confirmed In Texas

Post  kelee877 on Tue Feb 02, 2016 2:11 pm

On Tuesday afternoon, we’re reminded that you don’t have to be bitten by a South American mosquito to get Zika as Dallas officials confirmed the first Zika virus case in Dallas County acquired through sexual contact.

"Dallas County Health and Human Services confirmed the case Tuesday afternoon and said the patient was infected after having sexual contact with an ill individual who returned from a country where the virus is known to be present," NBC reports, adding that "Dallas County health officials said there are no reports of the Zika virus being transmitted locally by mosquitoes [but] imported cases of the virus make local spread possible.

“Now that we know Zika virus can be transmitted through sex, this increases our awareness campaign in
educating the public about protecting themselves and others,” said Zachary Thompson, DCHHS director.
