Five New Zika Virus Cases Detected In Rajasthan

The figures came from Rajasthan health department after a review meeting was held in the state by the additional chief secretary of the medical and health department Veenu Gupta on Friday.

"Forty-five out of the total 60 patients are healthy after treatment", the official said after the meeting where measures required to contain the situation were discussed. The virus was found by a team headed by National Institute of Malaria Research (NIMR) in some mosquitoes.

Fogging is being carried out in the area to prevent the spread of the virus, the official said.

The capital New Delhi has reported a rise in cases of dengue fever this year, with 169 reported in the first week of October, taking the total for the year to 650, according to local channel NDTV. Shastri Nagar area has reported the most infections, but cases have also been reported from Rajput Hostel on Station Road and from Vidyadhar Nagar area.

The state health department has also issued an advisory for pregnant women staying outside the affected area to not visit Shastri Nagar.

At least 276 teams have been deployed in Zika virus-affected wards of Jaipur's Shastri Nagar.

The Rajasthan government has been provided information, education and communication (IEC) material prepared to create awareness about the Zika virus and prevention strategies.

The first outbreak of Zika was reported in India in January 2017 in the western state of Gujarat, while the second outbreak was reported in the southern state of Tamil Nadu in July 2017.

With the virus - transmitted through the Aedes Aegypti mosquito - spreading, Gupta said random surveys were being done in other parts of the city but no case has been detected so far.

First discovered in 1947, the zika virus reached epidemic proportions in Brazil in 2015, when thousands of babies were born with microcephaly, a disorder that causes babies to be born with abnormally small heads and underdeveloped brains. Both these outbreaks were successfully contained through intensive surveillance and vector management.
