Mosquito-borne Zika is present in 130 countries and recent studies have shown it can also be transmitted sexually between human carriers
BOGOTA, Colombia (Apr. 24, 2016) — Nearly 72,000 cases of Zika have been reported in Colombia since October 2015, with almost 13,000 occurring in pregnant women, although the country is going through a decline in outbreaks, health authorities said Saturday, April 23.
