@Swamy39 Sir, Culex Mosquito has always been in India. Japanese Encephalitis in UP is spread by Culex. Its most common type of mosquito in India, as it breeds in dirty and polluted water. In India, it's also called nuisance mosquito as it doesn't spread any diseases except in some areas
@Swamy39 Further Yellow Fever is spread by Aedes and not Culex Mosquito. We also have Aedes species in India and diseases like Dengue and Chikungunya are spread by Aedes.
@Swamy39 Preventive Yellow fever vaccination has worked well.but our immigration officers need to be more vigilant to ensure that anyone to travels to yellow fever endemic countries is vaccinated. I traveled 3 times to such countries and no body at airport checked my vaccination status
@Swamy39 Slight more information about my 1st tweet - Culex vishnu spreads Japanese Encephalitis and Culex quinquifasciatus is nuisance mosquito
@Swamy39 One big risk that we all should note is that India has little preparedness to diagnose yellow fever cases, just in case one day someone with yellow fever virus infection walks in India - we would not know it. Big problem/danger is we already have Aedes mosquito to transmit it
