AIIMS Bhopal has also clarified that no such case has been reported from anywhere in Madhya Pradesh.
Comment: It would have been worrying if any cases of Yellow Fever were reported in India, since this could lead to its spread here. In this time of International travel, it is important for doctors to be aware of possibility of exotic diseases being transmitted, and taking a travel history becomes very important for diagnosis as well.
