In a media statement released on Wednesday, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP) also said that it already alerted all points of entry authorities in the UAE to report and quarantine anyone suspected of having been infected by the Nipah virus, also known as NiV. On the bottom left, you see a thin section EM image of a mature virus particle, and the bottom right image depicts a thin section EM image of nucleocapsids show adjacent to the plasma membrane of an infected cell.

In West Bengal, one more patient with mysterious fever, suspected to be infected by Nipah virus, was on Tuesday ( May 29) admitted to ID Hospital in Beliaghata here. Further, samples sent from cattle and pigs in the vicinity that were also sent tested negative for Nipah virus. This was the first NiV outbreak in South India. Doctors suspect the virus had spread from a 26-year-old, triggering an outbreak in Kozhikode.

According to the WHO report, 600 Nipah cases were reported in the world from 1998 to 2015.

"We had taken him to Domkol hospital, then to Baharampur and finally here after consultation with the medics there", they said. A multi-disciplinary team led by the Indian Government's National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) is in Kerala in response to the outbreak.

Symptoms of the infection include fever, headache, drowsiness, respiratory illness, disorientation and mental confusion, and patients progress into a coma within 24-48 hours.

The good thing is the government of India has capacity to deal with Nipah.

However, the disease itself was contained quickly before it could become an outbreak.

"Most of the devastating infectious diseases in human history began as infections that spilled over from animals and people and then acquired the capacity for efficient person-to-person transmission", he explained. And despite there being an abundance of the type of bat that carries Nipah, the body of evidence suggests that the virus is rarely found even in these bats.
