Isabela Vieira reports from Agência Brasil

The Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) confirmed Friday (Feb. 5) the presence of the Zika virus, potentially capable of causing infection, in samples of saliva and urine. Fiocruz President Paulo Gadelha says the new forms of transmission will be further studied from now on.

“This confirmation is of great significance as it changes the way we conduct research as well as its level,” he reported.
