New Danger of Zika virus Is Revealed

A lot of evidences, as well as research of scientists helped to establish that Zika virus can be transmitted from men to women (during intercourse) due to the fact that the pathogen persists in infected males semen for many weeks. But the last case suggests that the virus is also able to survive in vaginal secretions.
The possibility of transmission of Zika virus to healthy men through unprotected contact is likely to cause the World Health Organization to revise its recommendation for a summer Olympic Games in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

The authors expressed the view that more than half a million tourists may spread the virus to other countries, where it will be extended.
