avoid a septic disaster with rid-x. the cdc so the cdc sounding a new alarm over mixing pregnancy and alcohol. a new report estimates more than 3 million american women are sexually active not using contraception and yet drinking, which they say raises the risk of fetal alcohol syndrome could lead to a lifetime of disabilities.
3:14 am
year are affected by the fetal alcohol syndrome. the cdc expected to issue new guidelines now that a person in the u.s. has got the zika virus through sex. health officials in dallas say the unidentified person had sex with someone who had returned from venezuela and fallen ill with the mosquito-borne virus. they say it's really rare but not unheard of for the virus to be transmitted through sex. >> and here to talk with us about this latest development and the broader concern about the zika virus is abc's medical editor dan childs. this whole sexual transmission notion, has this ever happened before? and what does it mean? >> this is a case we just heard about today. and what's interesting is that this is kind of a big surprise. obviously, the vast majority of zika cases that have been seen thus far have been transmitted through mosquitos however, this is a sexual transmission. now, there was one case report back in 2008 that the suggested that zika might be able to be
3:15 am
it was a man that went to sen agala senegal, came back home to colorado, and his wife got sick, even though the mosquito doesn't live there. but what we've seen here is this is something they're taking very seriously as a new mode of transmission. and what will be really interesting to see is whether the u.s. health agencies start to make recommendations based on this. perhaps telling travelers who are coming back, male travelers, that if their partner is pregnant or at risk of being pregnant, for them to use barrier contraception for a while until after the threat of infection has passed. >> dan, when i was pregnant with my first child, i accidentally ate custard that had raw egg. they say you're never supposed to have raw egg. i couldn't sleep for like a week i was so worried it affected my child. when you compare zika to something like that, what are the real dangers and how significant is this? >> you know, it's interesting because the real dangers of zika for the average person, you're going to get a little sick. you're going to have a rash.
3:16 am
we've also heard that four out of five people who are actually infected with zika never show symptoms whatsoever. >> wow. >> but if you're a pregnant woman, there does appear to be this chance of this terrible birth defect. basically, it's about the worst thing that can happen. and that's the thing that's sticking in everyone's heads. the idea that this is perhaps associated with this viral illness and something like this might be able to happen. and this is the big reason that everyone's very scared about this. >> really quickly, a lot of people will be traveling especially for the olympics this summer. what do you do if you're a traveler? >> well, it all comes down to practicing safe travel habits. you know, we've heard from the health agency so far that if you're pregnant or if you're expecting to become pregnant, you might want to reconsider this trip if you're going to an area that's affected like brazil. even if not, let's say you're going on that trip anyway, it makes sense to practice safe mosquito hygiene.
3:17 am
spray and try not to get bitten. now, of course, with the news from today, it seems to make sense that if you're a man and coming back home, think about using barrier contraception for a little while until you're sure you're in the clear. >> abc's dan childs, thank you. coming up in our next half hour, showdown at the super bowl. the two quarterbacks and how they're gearing up for the biggest game of their lives. the fresh young cam newton versus the veteran peyton manning, in what could be his last game. but first, the little reporter at the big game asking peyton manning -- cam, peyton stars those hard-hitting questions.
