Zika Virus in India: Health Ministry Takes No Action

The cases of Zika virus in India were hushed up and not reported to the people. It is criminal for the government to keep the country in the dark about confirmed cases for months. We only learn of it from the World Health Organisation (WHO) report now. WHO, based on a report by Government of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), confirmed first three cases of the dreaded Zika virus from Ahmedabad. The International body also confirmed the evidence on the circulation of the virus in India. This raises questions about what else is being hidden by this government, whether in the field of public health or other sensitive areas.
