People returning from areas with transmission of the Zika virus should follow safer sex practices or abstain from sex for at least eight weeks, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday, doubling the four weeks it had previously recommended.

Women wanting to get pregnant should wait for six months if their male partner had symptoms of the virus, the WHO's revised guidance said.
