Nipah virus news What is the incubation period of the nipah virus

Weeks after the deadly Nipah virus appeared in the state of Kerala, the Health Department of that territory announced today there are no new cases of infection or death in that southern region of India.

The need for new tests to determine the source of Nipah outbreak deepens the mystery behind the spread of the virus.

More than 150 suspected blood samples sent to test and there were no new positive cases found. Health officials and doctors had given relief that the Nipah fear was over. While the viral infection has been contained, approximately 2,000 suspected persons are being monitored to rule out any other cases. But Health Minister KK Shailaja praised doctors for their swift efforts in what she called "containing the outbreak".

"This is unprecedented when compared to the outbreaks seen across the world".

Dr. Pradeep Awate, state surveillance officer, said that the public health officials are being trained to identify symptoms and transmission of the virus.

According to Indian broadcasting agency NDTV, Dr Gopakumar took it upon himself to conduct the last rites of three patients who later tested negative for Nipah, as their families were too scared to be near them.

"I was saddened that during his last journey there was none of his dear ones to perform last rites".

Dr Anoop Kumar and his team from Baby Memorial Hospital also played a significant role in the early diagnosis of Nipah, sample testing and alerting the government. Speaking on the sidelines of the 71st World Health Assembly in Geneva, Nadda said, "Within five hours of the first report, we activated the protocol". He mentioned that his brother had died a few days ago.

"GVN members are providing scientific, clinical and epidemiological expertise in addition to reagents to laboratories in the field", said Professor Christian Bréchot, President of the GVN.

"We urgently called them to the hospital". Their condition worsened by evening. The virus was first found in Malaysia and Singapore when pig farmers and those who came in close contact with pigs became ill in the village of Sungai Nipah.

India has been seeking help from Australia by importing monoclonal antibodies to a Nipah virus antigen. "Currently, there is no human or animal treatment or vaccine", he said.
