Recently, a 38-year-old man tested positive for Zika Virus at Patwardhan Bagh in Erandwane. He exhibited symptoms like fever and cough, prompting local health authorities to conduct blood tests, revealing 16 confirmed cases in these areas. Seven local ward offices identified 15 additional patients, totaling 118 pregnant women for blood testing. Eight pregnant women have already tested positive, and further reports are anticipated.

Due to the high risk of infection, urgent measures are being taken to prevent the spread, especially as the virus poses a threat to pregnant women and their unborn children. Positive patients are quarantined at home, while health teams investigate nearby areas for potential infections. Breeding spots for mosquitoes, which can carry diseases, are also being closely monitored by health officials. If breeding is found, mosquito control measures, including the use of larvicides, are implemented within a three-kilometer radius to protect pregnant women and prevent further spread.

Health officials emphasize the importance of early detection and treatment, urging residents to cooperate with testing efforts and follow quarantine guidelines if diagnosed positive. The community is urged to remain vigilant and report any symptoms promptly to curb the outbreak’s impact.

Proactive health measures and community cooperation are crucial in containing the spread of COVID-19 in Erandwane. Authorities continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure the safety and well-being of all residents, particularly vulnerable groups like pregnant women.
