A first case of Zika spread through sexual transmission has been recorded in France after a woman was infected when her partner returned from Brazil, Heath Minister Marisol Touraine told AFP on Saturday.
The case was detected several days ago in "a woman who is not pregnant," the minister told AFP during a visit to French Guiana, confirming information initially given to AFP by a medical source. The couple lives in the Paris area and the woman is "doing well", the minister's entourage said.
