Zika virus in Kerala

 Zika virus in Kerala:

 

According to the Veena George health minister, government of Kerala stated that two persons tested positive for Zika virus in Thiruvananthapuram. Out of the total 37 cases, 30 have been successfully cured while 7 are still undergoing treatment. Zika alert has been issued in all 14 districts of the state and a state-wide vector control drive has also been launched, the minister said.

 

“Almost every household will have to ensure that there is no stagnant water collection in their house or periphery. Fogging and drying are in full swing. We will overcome this,” George said, underscoring that strict vigilance is needed but there is no need to panic yet.
