In a written reply in the Lok Sabha, Gujarat Minister of the state for health Anupriya Patel stated that one case of laboratory positive Zika virus had been detected in Ahmedabad, as part of routine laboratory surveillance in January 2017. She further added that the required containment measures were taken up as part of protocol and intensified detailed surveillance both in humans and mosquitoes in and around Ahmedabad and Gujarat did not show any further positive cases.

Ironically, the medical health official of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and the epidemic department of the state health ministry claim that no such case of Zika virus has been reported so far from Ahmedabad or Gujarat.
