2:12 am
and the broader concern about the zika virus is abc's medical editor dan childs. this whole sexual transmission notion, has this ever handed before and what does it mean? >> this is a case we just heard about today. and what's interesting is that this is kind of a big surprise. obviously, the vast majority of zika cases that have ever been seen thus far have ever been transmitted through mosquitos. however this is a sexual transmission. now, there was one case report back in 2008 that the suggested that zika might be able to be transmitted sexualally. a man went to senegal, came back home to colorado and his wife got sick even though the mosquito doesn't live there. but what we've seen here is this is something they're taking very seriously as a new mode of transmission. and what will be really interesting to see is whether the u.s. health ancies start to make recommendations based on this. perhaps telling traveler who are

2:14 am
might be able to be happen. and this is the big reason that everyone's very scared about this. >> really quickly, a lot of people will be traveling especially for the olympics there summer. what do you do if you're a traveller? >> well, it all comes down to practicing safe travel habits. you know, we've heard from the health agency so far that if you're pregnant or if you're expecting to become pregnant, you might want to reconsider this trip if you're going to an area that's affected like brazil. even if not, let's say you're going on that trip anyway it, makes sense to practice safe mosquito hygiene. wear long sleeves, use that bug pray and try not to get bitten. now of course, with the news from today, it seems to make sense that if you're a man and coming back home, think about using barrier contraception for a little while until you're sure you're in the clear. >> abc's dan childs. coming up in our next half hour, showdown at the super bowl. the two quarterbacks and how they're gearing up for the biggest game of their lives.
