With a little more data, it is now clear that the animals challenged with African lineage Zika virus have consistently lower plasma viremia than animals infected with Asian lineage Zika virus. Moreover, only one of the three animals in this study have any detectable virus in urine, while all three animals given Asian lineage virus had detectable virus in urine. If experience with HIV is any guide, higher concentrations of virus in various fluids can be proportional to transmission risk.
