First case of sexually transmitted Zika in Florida confirmed by Florida Health Department

The virus lingers in the blood stream and saliva for up to two weeks after infection and remains in fluids like semen for months. But NIH scientists confirm a kiss is not dangerous

Zika is back for its summer sequel: the first case of sexual transmission of the disease for 2017 has, heh, popped up in Pinellas County.

Casual contact like kissing or sharing a fork or spoon is unlikely to pass a Zika virus infection, a new study said Tuesday.

Officials want to warn the public to take precautions if you or your partner traveled to an area where Zika is active. "The department notified mosquito control, and appropriate mosquito reduction activities are taking place", the Department of Health said.

To date in 2017, Florida has reported a total of 118 Zika virus cases, including 6 locally acquired infections exposed in 2016, tested in 2017. There is no evidence of mosquito transmission of Zika virus having occurred anywhere in Florida. Traps were set at five locations throughout the county in June searching for the Asian tiger mosquito, the species most known to carry the virus. "That hinders the ability of the virus to move and get to cells that they could infect", added Dawn Dudley, a scientist at the university.

Zika can persist in semen over extended periods of time.

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.

Cuba is now listed by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as one of the countries with a Zika travel risk.

However, the researchers were also quick to point out a mysterious case of Zika transmission - between an elderly man and his caretaker son in Utah previous year - that ruled out better-understood routes such as mosquitoes or sexual activity.

"For other states, particularly here in the south where we have mosquito populations where this is some risk of local transmission". Ninety of the cases are travel-related infections.
