    • The first case of female-to-male sexual transmission of the Zika virus has been documented in NYC, raising the prospect that the disease will spread further than previously thought.
    • "The more we learn about Zika, the more concerned we are," said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC.
    • For months, there has been growing fear about the dangers of sexual transmission, but until now the virus has been thought to pass only from men to women or between two men.
