horn Posted November 9, 2019 Share Posted November 9, 2019 @karbatal Beware! Gay man infected with dengue after fucking his bf. First sexually transmitted dengue case confirmed in Spain By Harriet Alexander 8 November 2019 • 8:13pm Spanish health authorities have confirmed a case of a man spreading dengue through sex, a world first for a virus which until recently was thought to be transmitted only by mosquitos. The case concerns a 41-year-old man from Madrid who contracted dengue after having sex with his male partner who picked up the virus from a mosquito bite during a trip to Cuba, said Susana Jimenez of the Madrid region's public health department. His dengue infection was confirmed in September and it puzzled doctors because he had not travelled to a country where the disease, which causes severe flu-like symptoms such as high fever and body aches, is common, she added. "His partner presented the same symptoms as him but lighter around ten days earlier, and he had previously visited Cuba and the Dominican Republic," she said. "An analysis of their sperm was carried out and it revealed that not only did they have dengue but that it was exactly the same virus which circulates in Cuba." A "likely' case of sexual transmission of dengue between a man and a woman was the subject of a recent scientific article in South Korea, she said. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/11/08/first-sexually-transmitted-dengue-case-confirmed-spain/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
