Two suspected cases of Nipah virus reported from a second Indian state

Nipah Virus That Killed 12 In Kerala May Not Be Linked To Bats 10 Points

The symptoms of the disease include fever, headache, drowsiness, respiratory illness, disorientation and mental confusion. The virus is usually transmitted through contact with saliva or excreta of infected bats - by eating contaminated fruit, for one - and can spread from one person to another through contact and exchange of body fluids.

Extending a helping hand to the family of nurse Lini Puthussery, who died after contracting Nipah from her patients, the Kerala government on Wednesday chose to give a government job to her husband and Rs 10 lakh each to two of their children. 10 of them have already died. "A central health team has found several bats housed in that well from where a family living in the house was drawing water", a health official said.

The Health Department said on Thursday that a total of 160 samples were sent for testing to Pune. The report is expected on Friday. "People should not panic".

At least nine other people have died in the Nipah outbreak in Kozhikode, formerly known as Calicut.

"There is no need to panic".

Although state health officials in Kerala - a popular travel destination for Gulf tourists - have declared the state safe, they have cautioned travellers against visiting the districts of Kozhikode, Malappura, Waynad and Kannur. Lini Puthussery, 31, whose "selfless service" is being hailed as "heroic" left a note for her husband before dying. The letter read "Sajeesh Etta, I am nearly on the way". I don't think I will be able to see you. Sorry. Take care of our Children. "Please. With lots of love".

"I am not very anxious about my family back there as the state medical department is working very efficiently and we hope that the virus will be contained soon", he adds.

Battlefield V Release Date, Trailer, Gameplay, Modes, Open Beta, and Editions Revealed
EA Dice revealed details about the latest entry to the Battlefield series at a conference on May 23, 2018 . But if you do get there, it actually kind of sounds like the final showdown will be a battle royale mode.

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.

Government authorities have put Kerala state on high alert.

"The virus spreads fast and leads to death in 70 per cent cases", said Delhi-based Dr. N.P. Gupta.

It was the slow response to West Africa's 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak, which killed more than 11,300 people before an effective vaccine was developed, that prompted the launch of the CEPI coalition in January 2017.

There is now no vaccine or treatment to tackle Nipah, which has a mortality rate of around 70 percent.

The health department also advised people to avoid consuming fruits that are half-eaten by bats or birds.
