US has commenced an investigation into the possible sexual transmission of Zika virus, Centre for Disease Control (CDC) said.

Thus, 14 such reports, including pregnant women, will be looked into.

In a written statement CDC said, "These new reports suggest sexual transmission may be a more likely means of transmission for Zika virus than previously considered.”

Meanwhile, CDC also published a new guidance to avoid getting infected with Zika. This included using protection when having sexual intercourse when travelling.
