Health Minister Harsh Vardhan Monday said "there is no Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in India", adding the country has mechanism for prompt treatment and subsequent monitoring.


"There is no EVD in India," he said in a statement.

He added: "There is no reason for getting worried over the odd case of a visitor to the country arriving in an indisposed condition. We have all the mechanisms in place for prompt treatment and subsequent monitoring."

His statement came in the aftermath of a traveller from Nigeria having symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection at the IGI Airport Saturday.

The traveller was taken to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital here where he tested negative for EVD.

Vardhan ordered another review meeting Monday between officers of the ministries of health, home, external affairs, civil aviation and the National Disaster Management Authority besides representatives of World Health Organisation.

Health Secretary Lov Verma chaired the meeting. This is the second inter-ministerial meeting in less than a week.
