The single case of sexual transmission of the Zika virus in Texas raises concerns, but the main focus must remain on preventing mosquito bites, the World Health Organization says.
WHO spokesman Gregory Haertl acknowledges that the Texan case "raises concerns and we can understand the concern of everyone."
"What we do know is that almost a 100 per cent of the cases are caused by transmission by mosquitoes. So for WHO, the most important thing to do is to control people's exposure to mosquitoes," Haertl adds.
