Centre sends team to Assam to review Japanese Encephalitis cases

The Centre has sent a team to Assam to review the situation after Japanese Encephalitis (JE) cases were reported from the state.

Japanese Encephalitis

  • Japanese Encephalitis is vector-borne encephalitis transmitted by Culex groups of mosquitoes.
  • These mosquitoes breed mainly in rice fields and large water bodies rich in aquatic vegetation.
  • Migratory birds and pigs play an important role in the transmission of JE from one area to the other.
  • Ten high endemic districts of Assam – Shivsagar, Barpeta, Nagaon, Sonitpur, Darrang, Udalguri, Bongaigaon, Cachar, Morigaon and Nalbari-- have been included under the multipronged strategy for prevention and control of JE.

These districts have also been covered under adult JE vaccination campaign.
