ZIKA sexually transmitted in Texas?
      #1682756 - 02/02/16 06:05 PM (71.200.130.68)


I was just on AOL and they had an article about he ZIKA virus having been transmitted sexually?
Don't know if it's true. I would like to hear what the CDC has to say about it.

There are warnings out that this can happen. There have been a few other cases.

So I guess it would be wise not to have sex with a mosquito?

Yes, it has been on TV and the newspapers here for days.

(The virus is strongly suspected of causing microcephaly, a rare and potentially deadly birth defect, as well as an adult neurological disorder called Guillain Barré Syndrome.)From one of the news articles.

Since you say they are strongly attracted to you, best to refrain from that!

If you do, I don't think it would be a bragging point.

CDC is now saying it can be transmitted, though not commonly, via body fluids. So not just sex but kissing, coughing, spitting. So have safe sex wear something to cover your mouth.

But how do you get a condom on a mosquito? Oh, wait---only the female mosquito bites!

You are funny!!!!!
When I watched the news on TV this morning the suggestion was to wear a bug repellent with Permethren and at least 20% DEET. Listening to that was like listening to the side effects on a drug commercial! The mosquitoes won't bite you but you toes may fall off!
