Dual burden of Zika and COVID-19 in India: challenges, opportunities and recommendations
- MedicineTropical Medicine and Health
There is a huge risk that ZVD might become endemic in India, which is especially dangerous in the backdrop of this pandemic, and public health measures, vector control and early diagnosis must be stopped at all costs.

SARS‐CoV‐2 infection in India bucks the trend: Trained innate immunity?
- EconomicsAmerican journal of human biology : the official journal of the Human Biology Council
It is hypothesized that trained innate immunity, a new concept in immunology, may be the phenomenon behind this, as biocultural, socioecological, and socioeconomic determinants seem to be influencing the outcome of COVID‐19 in different regions/countries of the world.

Residence in infected neighborhoods and fertility decline during the Zika epidemic in Singapore
- MedicinePopulation and Environment
The results show that the average monthly probability of conception leading to a live birth fell during the Zika epidemic in both exposed and unexposed neighborhoods, and that the decline was not significantly greater in neighborhoods with known cases.
Zika virus in India: past, present and future.
- MedicineQJM : monthly journal of the Association of Physicians
The epidemiology, clinical features, management of Zika virus in India, and the spread of this disease beyond geographical barriers is discussed owing to the growing globalization, increased travel and ubiquitous presence of its vector, the Aedes mosquito.

History of ZIKV Infections in India and Management of Disease Outbreaks
- Medicine, BiologyFront. Microbiol.
It appears that the ZIKV strain circulating in India possibly belongs to the “Asian lineage,” which has not yet been associated with microcephaly and other neurological disorders, but there still exists a threat that the contemporary ZikV virulent strain from South America, carrying a mutation can return to Asia, posing a potential crisis to newborns and adult patients.
An Update on Zika Virus in Asia

Zika virus (ZIKV) was first isolated in Asia from mosquitoes from Malaysia in 1966. However, the incidence of Zika and Zika-related neurological complications in Asia is not well known. The few…
Assessing the population at risk of Zika virus in Asia – is the emergency really over?
- MedicineBMJ Global Health
It is concluded that the WHO’s removal of the PHEIC designation should not be interpreted as an indication that the threat posed by ZIKV has subsided, and the population at risk of ZikV infection in Asia could be even larger than in the Americas.
A single mutation in the prM protein of Zika virus contributes to fetal microcephaly
A single serine-to-asparagine substitution in the viral polyprotein substantially increased ZIKV infectivity in both human and mouse neural progenitor cells (NPCs) and led to more severe microcephaly in the mouse fetus, as well as higher mortality rates in neonatal mice.
Case of Microcephaly after Congenital Infection with Asian Lineage Zika Virus, Thailand
