The deadliest Nipah virus has claimed one more life in Kozhikode district of Kerala on Sunday, taking the overall death toll to 14, reports.

A 20-year old male from Kerala has been kept in "isolation" at Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMC) as he is suspected to be suffering from the Nipah virus.

Nipah virus (NiV) infection in humans has a range of clinical presentations, from asymptomatic infection to acute respiratory syndrome and fatal encephalitis, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Health Minister Vishwajeet Rane, told presspersons that it was still unclear whether the patient was suffering from Nipah disease and that they would get clarity once test results are verified at the National Institute of Virology in Pune.

However, state health department has taken necessary steps in this regard, said Manipur health services director, Dr. K Rajo Singh.

Health experts stressed the need for early detection and infection control to arrest the virus's spread.

Why was Tommy Robinson arrested?
The 35-year-old was arrested after broadcasting on social media outside Leeds crown court where a trial was ongoing last week. During the apparently unexpected arrest, Robinson asked the reason for it. "Thirty percent of them are called Mohammed".

Of some 116 suspected instances despatched for testing in latest weeks, 15 have been confirmed as Nipah, the Kerala authorities stated on Monday, and 13 of these 15 individuals have died.

Nipah virus infection can be prevented by avoiding exposure to sick pigs and bats in endemic areas and not drinking raw date palm sap.

Last week, the ministry also asked residents to put off travel to Kerala unless absolutely necessary.

While seeking to dispel fears, the department informed that Nipah Virus which is named after the Nipah River village in Malaysia is a new or emerging disease that can cause disease to human as well as animals.

During previous outbreaks, pigs were believed to have hosted the virus, but this outbreak has typically been spread by fruit bats.

The Stanford University epidemiologist added: "It is conceivable that there is now a strain of Nipah virus circulating among bats that, if it infected people, would efficiently transmit from person to person".
