Zika virus disease ceases to be a public health emergency of worldwide concern (PHEIC) according to WHO and can be handled as per existing protocol. The World Health Organization announced in November 2016 that the Zika virus is no longer a public health emergency of worldwide concern, but India's Health Ministry continues to monitor it.

Reports said health ministry has also issued an alert to eastern state of Bihar as one of affected in Jaipur hailed from Bihar and visited his home in Siwan district recently. "The guidelines of Union Health Ministry are being followed", he said. According to the government, it handled the both outbreaks successfully.
