Pigs to be Screened in New Delhi for JE Carrier

2011-12-23 8:26:00

<b>NEW DELHI, INDIA - To check spread of Japanese Encephalitis in the city, the government has ordered screening of pigs, which are primary reservoirs of the virus causing the disease. </b>

According to The Times of India, Health Minister A K Walia, at a meeting with top officials of his department as well as civic agencies, also issued direction for regulating the slaughter of pigs.

<r>"The pigs coming from the neighbouring states are becoming a cause for concern as out of the 81 blood samples taken from pigs brought from outside Delhi in November, 17 tested positive for the JE virus," said an official.

The meeting also decided to set up a slaughter house exclusively for pigs for which MCD and DDA have been told to take necessary action. Mr Walia exhorted all agencies to remain vigilant and intensify surveillance on pigs coming from other cities.

The health minister said diagnostic facilities are being extended in eight more government hospitals to offer treatment to people affected by the disease.
