Father’s tears may have infected son

A 38-year-old US man may have been infected with the Zika virus through the tears or sweat of his dying father, researchers said. If confirmed, it would be the first documented case of such transmission.

The man in the western state of Utah became ill after helping to take care of his 73-year-old father, who was hospitalized in June with Zika after being infected during a trip to his native Mexico.
