Much is still unknown about Zika fever - a relative of dengue, West Nile viruses and yellow fever. There are little to no symptoms and the virus can be transmitted sexually from an infected person. The only confirmed local cases all were associated with exposure to Zika previous year, CBS/AP reported. At Gov. Rick Scotts direction, all county health departments offer free Zika risk assessment and testing to pregnant women.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not routinely test donated sperm for Zika, but it does forbid anonymous donors for six months if they have been diagnosed with the virus, traveled to an affected area or had sex with someone who may have been infected. The Texas case is also the first local case in any state this year. People are reminded of the importance of being vigilant during travel in areas known to have the Zikavirus and on their return home to prevent infection with the Zikavirus. The majority of the cases were travel related and occurred in 2016. This case study highlights the importance of using condoms during sexual intercourse after visiting a Zika-infected area in addition to using mosquito repellents and barriers.
