Zika transmission through sweat, tears reported
Researchers from the University of Utah School of Medicine have reported a case in which it is likely that a patient contracted the Zika virus from the sweat or tears of another infected individual. In correspondence with The New England Journal of Medicine, the researchers describe two cases they conclude indicate the spectrum of those at risk for Zika infection "may be broader than previously recognized." They added that those who are not severely immunocompromised or chronically ill may also be at risk for a fatal infection.
