Zika virus spreads through India
Recent reports have confirmed that there have been over one hundred more cases of people who have been infected with Zika, and the disease is now spreading to India.
Zika is an extremely harmful virus that causes severe brain defects in developing foetuses if the mother is exposed to the virus during pregnancy. It can also be passed from one person to another through unprotected sexual intercourse, the virus remaining in the semen longer than other bodily fluids.
Fertility First ensures all its patients, including potential donors are tested for Zika virus.
