Biologist Gets First Ever Mosquito-Borne STD

Scientists think they may have documented the first case of a sexually transmitted insect-borne disease, according to a study in Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Brian Foy, a vector biologist at Colorado State University who traveled to Senegal, was bitten by a mosquito and subsequently developed the Zika virus, which causes fatigue and joint pains.

When Foy returned to the U.S. and had sex with his wife, he unknowingly transmitted the disease to her.

Foy, who is also the author of the study, initially wrote about three anonymous patients, but later revealed in an interview with Science Now that he is patient No. 1; his colleague, Kevin Kobylinski, a Ph.D student who accompanied Foy on the trip, is patient No. 2; and Foy’s wife, Joy Chilson Foy, is patient No. 3. Chilson Foy co-authored the study.

Oh boy, I can see how this could stir up troubles in a marriage. Honey, I got bit by a mosquito..... that's how I got the STD. I wasn't F-ing around! That would be a hard one to sell to your spouse.

The world just keeps getting more crazy all the time doesn't it?
