Zika is working its way around the United States. It’s spreading across Florida, and is before long expected to reach Texas, Louisiana and other Southern states. It is a dizzying trip, and one that isn’t going to end anytime soon.

The virus spreads from a type of mosquito that has now officially been confirmed to carry Zika in Miami Beach. A massive effort to kill them in South Carolina produced a disaster for the bee population there.
But while mosquitoes are a key menace when it comes to Zika, the media and public officials are too focused on them. They also need to pay attention to sex: If we are going to stop the spread of this disease, we are going to need better access to Zika testing for anyone who is sexually active in a Zika zone.
