In the first phase, which constituted of four hundred cases from march ’97 to April ’97, 2.25% cases showed seropositivity. The second phase which consisted of five hundred cases between September ’97 to October ’97, 2.4% cases showed seropositivity. The third phase which consisted of two hundred fifty cases between February ’98 and March ’98, 3.2% of cases showed seropositivity.
