Kochi: The corona epidemic has added to the biggest problems in the country's state of Kerala. After 5 more cases of Zika have come to light, the total number of Zika infection cases received in the State has increased to 61 so far. State Health Minister Veena George said in a statement that all the five persons found infected are from Thiruvananthapuram. The investigation conducted in Alappuzha revealed that the five cases were of the same infection.
According to the same health department, the patients were not admitted to the hospital and the condition of all of them is stable. The Minister has appealed to all to be vigilant as the figure swelled in the number of people infected with Zika infection in the state. Amid the increasing number of Zika virus cases, the Chief Minister had said that Zika infection cases in Kerala are not unexpected as the virus is transmitted by the Aedes mosquito that spreads dengue and chikungunya.
According to health officials, control of the infection can be found in the infected person who takes bed rests. At present, there is no anti-fungal drug and vaccine for Zika infection. The best way to prevent this infection is to avoid mosquito bites during the day. The infection is said to be dangerous for pregnant women as it can cause viruses to the fetus, increasing the risk of any deformity in the child.
