The press concludes that arboviruses can be sexually transmitted

Image
What would you conclude if you read the following headlines: Man sexually transmits insect-borne disease to wife (Fox News); Zika virus: First insect borne STD? (HuffPo); Scientist gives insect-borne disease to wife during sex (New York Magazine), and A scientist contracts a mosquito-borne virus and gives it to his wife as std (Time). What would be your impression if you read the journal article on which these headlines are based, which does not conclude that the infection was transmitted sexually?
