    AUSTIN, Texas, Feb 2 (Reuters) - The first U.S. case of the Zika virus has been contracted in Dallas County, local health officials said on Tuesday, adding there are no reports of the virus being locally transmitted by mosquitoes in the Texas county.

    Dallas County Health and Human Services said the case in Dallas was acquired through sexual transmission, adding that it received confirmation of the infection from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The county did not identify the person infected. The CDC said it did not investigate how the virus was transmitted.

    There have been six confirmed travel-related cases of Zika virus disease, all among residents of Harris County, where Houston is located, the Texas Department of State Health Services said.

    In medical literature, there has been only one case of Zika transmitted sexually and one case in which the virus was detected in semen.

    who knows, Zika was identified in 1947 and has been all over the equatorial-ish world and not in North America, Europe, Russia, or dry places like the ME and N Africa

    expect more government bullshit, it's not a new virus at all

    Here's the thing about Zika... if you're a pregnant woman, it can potentially cause a serious defect (microcephaly) in your unborn child. But if you're not a pregnant woman, it's something like catching a cold. Headache, fever, sore joints, and maybe a skin rash that all go away in a couple days.

    Not much for this crowd to be concerned about.

    I find that it's kind of funny that I was in Brasil just a little over a week ago, and the main concern there was Chikungunya, a virus transmitted by mosquitoes. Chikungunya is a form of Dengue, but I say that to say that there was not a single WORD about this ZIKA virus. Classic case of fear mongering by the media.

    Cheers,

    Sean

    Zika is now implicated in an increase of Guillain–Barré syndrome:

    Fascinating: more people live closer together and have more sex with more of each other than ever before in human history, so the varieties of STDs are increasing, and they become epidemics much faster.

    Of course modern medical practice has advanced in identifying them more quickly too.

    Or, if you are one of the particularly unlucky ones, paralysis.

    You don't have to believe everything the virologists say. They need everything to be caused by a virus, totally ignoring the effects of heavy metal toxicity coming from mandatory TDap vaccines in pregnant women. It's obvious where the birth defects are coming from. And it's not from a decades-old virus that has never been associated with microcephally before..

    funny how a virus that's been around for decades suddenly wreaks havoc, isn't it?

    Well, think about it. It's a straight disease. Does not hurt gay men at all unless they want to have kids... lol
