Scientists identified the Zika virus in the saliva and urine of two infected patients, a top Brazilian biomedical research institution said on Friday, prompting its president to urge pregnant women not to kiss strangers just as local carnival celebrations begin.

The discovery added to the rising concern over Zika, which is spreading rapidly in the Americans and has been linked to thousands of severe birth defects in Brazil.

They said they used genetic testing to identify the virus in saliva and urine samples from two patients who had symptoms caused by Zika infection, and determined that the virus was active, meaning it had the potential to cause infection, scientists at the public Oswaldo Cruz Foundation said.
Brazil finds Zika in saliva, urine; expert warns against kissing


No more kissing, should be easy enough. It would be fun to make a PSA TV commercial around that concept...

"Your next kiss...could be your last."

"Don't touch that lover."

"Roses are red, violets are blue, your kiss may be deadly, and so may be you."

"Your mouth could be a deadly weapon."

New Aids on steroids perhaps? We hear about these things frequently. But they are asking for Brazilian peeps to not conceive or even think about it for a few more years.

Population control? ???

This would be a great opportunity for an entrepreneur to develop "mouth condoms"

so which drug company will come out with the oral condoms first?

the way this sounds, the republicans might want to put their attack on planned parenthood on the back burner for awhile and quite criticizing the organization for spending money abroad. it really sounds like these central american and south american countries could use their help.

Is this all to get us used to having a robot sex toy in the future?

I read about a month ago that robots would be overtaking normal natural relations at some point in the future!
