Like Mere Mortals, Kim Kardashian Is Scared of Catching Zika on Vacation

She worries about the mosquitos in Cuba.

The thing about mosquitos is they tend not to discriminate between A-listers and others when they choose their victims. If you're vacationing in a location where Zika-carrying mosquitos exist — then yes, you can get the virus. Even if you're Kim Kardashian.

The star apparently knows that — and fears it. In a bonus clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians shared on E! Online, Kim rides through Cuba in a vintage car with sister Kourtney Kardashian, and muses on her fears of catching the virus. 

"I wonder if there's like a test we can get for Zika like when we get back home?" she wonders aloud. "Just to like clear everyone's heads."

Kourtney seeks to clarify: "Have you been bit?"

Kim says no, and asks Kourtney if she has been bitten either. Negatory. So that's a good start.

FWIW, there is a test that can confirm Zika through blood or urine, however there is no medicine currently in existence that can treat it, according to the CDC. So prevention is the best cure!
