Mizoram government is keeping a close watch on the prevalence of swine flu (H1N1) and Japanese encephalitis (JE) in neighbouring Manipur, a senior state Health department official said on Monday.

State Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme (ISD) Nodal officer Dr Pachuau Lalmalsawma said that vigilance along the Mizoram-Manipur areas, especially entry points are being carefully watched and prohibitory order would soon be issued to prevent entry of animals regarded as carriers of the diseases.

Lalmalsawma told PTI that while swine flu outbreak had affected Mizoram earlier, no JE cases have been detected in the state till date.

Rapid Response Force would soon be activated in the border areas to maintain strict vigil in the border areas, he added.
