Lets hope they are wrong.



Zika Virus: Two Cases Suggest It Could Be Spread Through Sex
By DONALD G. McNEIL Jr.JAN. 25, 2016

Zika virus has already been linked to brain damage in babies and paralysis in adults. Now scientists are facing another ominous possibility: that on rare occasions, the virus might be transmitted through sex.














The evidence is very slim; only a couple of cases have been described in medical literature. But a few experts feel the prospect is disturbing enough that federal health officials should inform all travelers, not just pregnant women, of the potential danger.

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, say the evidence is insufficient to warrant such a warning. While the two instances suggest a “theoretical risk” of sexual transmission, they note the primary vector is clearly mosquitoes.

Dr. Márcio Nehab, a pediatrician and infectious disease specialist at Fiocruz, a research institute in Rio de Janeiro, said that much more research was needed to be done to definitively prove that Zika can be transmitted during sex.

Mosquito-Borne Zika Virus Found in 3 New York State PatientsJAN. 22, 2016


“At the moment we need to be more concerned with the mosquito, the vector known for transmitting the virus,” Dr. Nehab said in an information bulletin about Zika geared toward women and children.
At the moment, experts know of just one case in the medical literature of live Zika virus being detected in a man’s semen.

The man was an unidentified 44-year-old Tahitian man, exposed during an outbreak of Zika virus in French Polynesia in 2013. French scientists helping to investigate found high levels of the virus in semen samples taken from the patient, even after it disappeared from his blood.

It was unclear how long the virus had persisted in his body: He had had two episodes of fever that might have been caused by the Zika virus, one shortly before he was tested and another about two months earlier. The virus was also found in his urine.

A more unusual episode — the first clue that Zika could be sexually transmitted — occurred in 2008.
Brian D. Foy, a biologist specializing in insect-borne diseases at Colorado State University, was in rural Senegal with a graduate student, Kevin C. Kobylinski, collecting mosquitoes for a malaria study. Both were bitten many times.

About a week after they flew back to Colorado, Dr. Foy and Mr. Kobylinski each fell ill with rashes, fatigue and headaches, symptoms typical of several mosquito-borne illnesses.

A few days later, Dr. Foy’s wife — Joy L. Chilson Foy, a nurse and mother of four — showed similar symptoms, slowly developing a rash worse than that of either man, along with greater headache pain and bloodshot eyes.
All three eventually recovered. Late in his illness, however, Dr. Foy had genital pain and what appeared to be blood in his semen.

Blood was drawn from all three patients and tested for the usual West African suspects: malaria, dengue and yellow fever. All were negative.

Their infection remained a mystery until a year later, when Mr. Kobylinski, back in Senegal, met another scientist who suggested it could be Zika virus. The blood samples — which Dr. Foy had frozen — tested positive. That left the question of how Mrs. Foy had been infected.

She had not left northern Colorado, which has none of the mosquitoes that transmit Zika. And it seemed unlikely that she and her husband had been bitten by the same mosquito: The virus needs more than four days to move from the insect’s gut to its salivary glands.

Neither had passed the disease to their children, so even close family contact seemed noninfectious. The most likely explanation, the couple realized, was that they had had sex shortly after Dr. Foy’s return, before he fell ill.

Dr. Foy wrote about his experience in 2011 in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.
In an interview, Dr. Foy said he had been trying to get research money to study the phenomenon, but there have been obstacles: Until the last few weeks, there has been little interest in the obscure virus.

Zika Virus ‘Spreading Explosively’ in Americas, W.H.O. Says

It may be spread through an infected male impregnating a woman.

It may be transmitted through our fluids, blood, sperm.
