For Delhi health minister Satyendra Jain Google is the most reliable source of information as according to him chikungunya cannot cause deaths because the search engine told him so. The minister said that four of the five supposed chikunguniya deaths in Delhi were reported from the same hospital, which seems ‘suspicious’.
Jain said, “Why is it only in a select few Delhi hospitals? And upon enquiry, I have discovered that most of the deaths are of people, who were aged and already sick with other ailments.” He added that people need not to get panic and said that the state government is ready to provide help at all cost. “But one should get admitted only if the doctor advises them to do so and not because they are scared,” he said
Union Health Minister JP Nadda has held a review meeting in this regard and found out that there is an increase in cases of chikungunya in Delhi. Nadda urged the people not to panic and help in pacifying the current upsurge of vector borne diseases
