Zika virus alert in India! Detected in 14 people

In the Indian state of Kerala, the Zika virus was found in 14 people. According to the BBC’s report, Kerala Health Minister Veena George confirmed in a statement that Zika virus was detected in 14 people in the city of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum).

George stated that the virus was first seen in a 24-year-old pregnant woman who was admitted to the hospital on June 28 with headache, fever and rash. In his statement, the minister stated that the regions affected by monsoon rains have become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. The Zika virus is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected “Aedes aegypti” mosquito.

Zika virus, which appeared to be transmitted through blood and sexual intercourse, as well as mosquito bites, was first encountered in monkeys in the Zika forests of Uganda in 1947. Zika virus is thought to cause microcephaly, which refers to a neurodevelopmental disorder in infants, if transmitted to pregnant women.

There is no specific treatment or preventive vaccine for the disease, which shows symptoms such as fever, redness of the eyes, vomiting, rash, headache, muscle and joint pain.
