According to the director of CDC, condoms should be used during this period ‘until we know more’ on the manner of transmission of Zika virus. The first case of sexually transmitted was reported in Texas some days ago in Dallas and since then, a lot of investigations are ongoing to ascertain if it can be transmitted through saliva and urine. According to the CDC director, the guidance does not include anything about ‘kissing’ until it is ascertained.

There is no doubt that we will not have Nigeria men who have visited these Zika out breaks locations.
