First documented Female to Male transmission of the Zika virus.
A couple infected with the Zika Virus living in New York City marks the first documented case of a female-to-male transmission. Usually the virus is spread by mosquitos, and officials had already determined that men could spread the virus. If you were hoping for Congress to take action on this matter… you’ll have to wait. Congress left Washington and is taking a seven-week break despite unfinished business. They took a break without passing a bill that would have given over $1 billion to combat the spread of Zika.
