  • It is confirmed that a person in Texas has been infected with the Zika virus after having sex with an ill person who had returned from South America.
  • The Zika virus is usually spread through mosquito bites, but investigators have been exploring the possibility the virus also can be spread through sex.
  • “It’s very rare but this is not new, we always looked at the point that this could be transmitted sexually,” said Zachary Thompson, director of the Dallas County Health and Human Services.
