Kerala reports 5 more Zika virus cases

Five people have been newly diagnosed with the Zika virus in Kerala on Thursday. Eight of them are undergoing treatment at Thiruvanathapuram. 3 of the identified patients are pregnant women. With this the total of confirmed zika virus cases in the state has risen to 28. State Health Minister Veena George said that the health condition of all those confirmed with Zika virus was satisfactory and that Zika virus tests are being increased rampantly throughout the state. A control room has been set up at the district medical officer in the wake of the spread of the Zika virus in the Thiruvananthapuram municipal limits.

State Health Minister Veena George said that the State health department would extend all possible support to local bodies in the fight against the spread of Zika virus in the state. She assured that a micro plan will be prepared and preventive measures will be intensified. The minister reiterated that mosquito eradication activities would be given priority as both the Zika virus and dengue fever are spread by Aedes mosquitoes. As of now, special emphasis is on mosquito eradication and fogging in areas affected by the Zika virus. The minister also suggested that in consultation with the education department, measures are being taken to strengthen awareness among the students.
