New Delhi: A five-member central team has been sent to Jaipur to review the situation and formulate a strategy to contain the outbreak of Zika virus in the Rajasthan capital after eight more persons, including three pregnant women, tested positive for the infection, a health ministry official said on Friday.

An elderly woman was diagnosed with Zika infection in the last week of September in the first such case in Jaipur.

Since then, eight more persons, including three pregnant women have tested positive for the infection, the official said.

"It will be very difficult to identify the source of infection as majority of those infected with Zika virus disease remain asymptomatic.
In all probability whosoever brought the infection remained asymptomatic and transferred the virus to someone else," the official added.
