The article (very briefly) summarizes a scientific paper published last week in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, but does not cite it.

Here is the original article, DOI: 10.1084/jem.20171093


And here is a more detailed expository summary, from the PR people at one of the author's institutions: https://health.ucsd.edu/news/releases/Pages/2017-09-05-zika-...

  After all the flooding in Houston and Florida the situation is ripe for a zika outbreaks and zika spreading further into the United States

Congratulations, world might start to reinvestigate viral and phage cancer treatments thanks to those findings.
