The effects of the Zika virus on infants in utero has caused alarm all over the nation due to the dangerous microcephaly that occurs in babies whose mothers are exposed to it. Unfortunately, there is new evidence revealing that mosquitoes are not the only way to be infected by the virus. One new report has caused the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to announce new cautions should be taken by anyone who comes in contact with a person who has recently traveled outside of the United States. The first reported case of the Zika virus being transmitted through sexual contact has been officially confirmed. A person who had not traveled outside of the United States was infected by a person who recently had traveled abroad who was infected. Because the symptoms are often unnoticeable, it is best to use protection as a precaution. Doctors like Sergio Cortes are also recommending people in Zika infested areas wear long sleeves and pants and use mosquito repellant whenever possible.
