Maharashtra reported its first case of Zika virus on Saturday, said the Maharashtra Health Department.


A 50-year-old woman tested positive in Purandar tehsil in Pune district. According to the state health department, the patient is doing fine.




Maharashtra is the second state to have reported Zika virus case after Kerala.

On Saturday, Kerala Health Minister Veena George informed that two more people in the state were diagnosed with the virus.

The first case of the mosquito-borne viral infection was confirmed on July 8 in a 24-year-old pregnant woman in Kerala.

As part of efforts to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne disease, the Thiruvananthapuram Municipal Corporation and district administrations have intensified preventive activities, including fogging for the next few days and set up a control room.
