US investigating 14 possible sexually-transmitted Zika virus cases


The US Centre for Disease Control has said it is investigating 14 new reports of possible sexual transmission of the Zika virus.

The cases include several involving pregnant women.

The public health body made the revelation as it published new guidance on sexual transmission of the virus.

The guidance has been issued in response to confirmation of the first case of Zika in a non-traveller in the continental United States.

That case was linked to sexual contact with an infected partner.
