  • UAE, Bahrain caution citizens after Nipah virus outbreak

Healthcare workers caring for patients should put in place standard precautions including washing hands.

Keeping in mind the sacrifice of 28-year-old Lini Puthussery, a nurse at Perambra Taluk hospital, who died after being infected by the virus while treating her patients, Government today made a decision to give a job to her husband and financial assistance of rs 10 lakh each for her two sons- aged five and two. A female relative who was with them in hospital also died later. "It will lead to unnecessary panic among those coming from the south Indian state of Kerala". "Without laboratory reports it can not be said that these bats have been killed by Nipah virus", Choubey said, adding that he has already spoken to the Himachal Pradesh administration over the matter. The report is expected on Friday.

This is the fourth death in the Moosa family. Some 50 people died in the first two outbreaks.

But the minister said two new cases of patients with suspected NiV and fever were reported in Kozhikode and they were under observation.

It's believed that a nurse treating the victims in Kerala has also died.

"I think I am nearly on my way". I don't think I will see you again. "Sorry. Please raise our children well", she wrote in a letter to her husband before she died on Monday, reported the BBC. She signed it "Lots of love". World Health Organization said that the natural hosts of the virus are fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family, genus Pteropus.

Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare J.P. Nadda is closely monitoring the situation arising out of reported cases and deaths due to Nipah virus in Kerala.

Medics wearing protective gear examine a patient at a hospital in Kozhikode in the southern state of Kerala, India May 21, 2018. Two "control rooms" in the worst-hit Kozhikode district have been set up to closely monitor the spread of the virus.

The Health Department said on Thursday that a total of 160 samples were sent for testing to Pune.

Shailaja had said earlier the outbreak had been "effectively" contained and that there was no need for the public to panic.

Avoid travelling to Kerala or Karnataka at this time. NiV was first identified during an outbreak of disease in Kampung Sungai Nipah, Malaysia, in 1998.

Meanwhile, Nipah, the rare virus spread by fruit bats, has claimed another life in Kerala taking the total toll to 12 on Thursday. In 2004, humans who consumed the date palm sap infected by fruit bats, caught the virus as well.
