No Nipah virus cases detected in TN: Health Minister

Chennai, Sept 16 (SocialNews.XYZ) Tamil Nadu Health Minister Ma Subramanian on Saturday said that no Nipah virus cases have been detected in the state.

Subramanian also said that the state registered three dengue deaths since January this year.

The number of people infected with dengue stood at 4,048, he added.
