July 15, 2016

(UPI) – A New York City woman who became infected with the Zika virus on a trip outside the United States passed the infection to her boyfriend during sex, city health officials reported. It’s the first reported case of female-to-male sexual transmission of Zika — before this case, sexual transmission had only been reported as spreading from men to women.
