Screening for Zika suspects at airport

Lucknow: Travellers, both domestic and international, arriving at Amausi airport with flu like symptoms will be screened for probable Zika infection. The screening will begin this month.
The state health department will set up three teams which will work round the clock. The decision comes after two Zika cases were reported from Ahmedabad last week. The teams will also keep a record of symptoms of suspected cases for a follow up.
