Healthy Living: Stopping Zika
More than 5,000 cases of Zika virus have been reported in the United States since 2015, and scientists say there may be a resurgence of cases of this mosquito-borne disease over the next few months.

There have been very few studies linking Zika virus to infertility in men, but there is a CDC study underway in men in Puerto Rico examining a link between Zika, sperm motility and a decrease in testosterone levels.
According to the National Institutes of Health, the first human clinical trial of a potential Zika vaccine is underway at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research.
