VIRUS DOOM : Sexually Transmitted Zika Virus Case In US

Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS) said the Dallas patient acquired the virus from sexual contact with an ill individual who had returned from a country where Zika is present.

Health officials said last week that 31 people in the US have been diagnosed with the Zika infection in the past year.
