Women are more likely to be infected by Zika virus at sexually active ages.One study conducted in Rio de Janiero found that women were 60 percent more likely to be infected than men.

If the virus was transmitted primarily via mosquito bites, then a gender divide would not likely appear—blood is blood to mosquitos, gender aside. Zika also resides in semen for months after an infection, no matter how mild. (No cases of female-to-male transmission have been documented.)

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.
