A new study showing the effects of the Zika virus in mice could prove true for humans.

According to CBS News, tests conducted on male mice show a major decrease in fertility. Some mice saw their testicles shrink as much as 90 percent.

Scientists working on the study suspect that mice will have permanent damage as a result.

In April, the focus of Zika virus effects was on pregnant women and their unborn child. That study proved the virus can potentially cause microcephaly and sometimes miscarriage.
