The first case of sexual transmission of Zika virus from a woman to a man appears to have occurred in New York City, health officials there reported Friday.

The unnamed woman “engaged in a single event of condomless vaginal intercourse with a male partner the day she returned to NYC from travel to an area with ongoing Zika virus transmission,” according to Alexander Davidson, MPH, and colleagues in the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, during which she had already begun to show symptoms of infection.
