Researchers from the University of Utah School of Medicine have reported a case in which it is likely that a patient contracted the Zika virus from the sweat or tears of another infected individual.

In correspondence published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the researchers describe two cases that they conclude indicate the spectrum of those at risk for Zika infection “may be broader than previously recognized.” They added that those who are not severely immunocompromised or chronically ill may also be at risk for a fatal infection.

“Although many of the flavorings used in e-cigarette liquids have been certified as safe for eating, little is known about their effects when heated and inhaled in e-cigarettes,” Maciej Goniewicz, PhD, PharmD, lead researcher and assistant professor of oncology in the department of health behavior at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, said in a recent news release about the study. “This study suggests that various characteristics of e-cigarettes, including any flavorings, may induce inhalation toxicity and, therefore, caution should be used with these products until more comprehensive studies are performed.”

Researchers may have discovered why high rates of West Nile virus infection in birds in the Atlanta area have not translated into a large number of infected people. Unlike American robins, which efficiently pass West Nile virus to mosquitoes, northern cardinals do not carry enough of the virus to infect the feeding insects, according to Rebecca S. Levine, PhD, epidemic intelligence service officer at the CDC, and colleagues.
