Nipah; Woman with Nipah symptoms dies in the isolation ward

In the wake of Nipah virus outbreak, the schools in Malappuram district will reopen only on June 12.

The advisory cautions all Bhutanese students studying in India on the outbreak of Nipah virus in Kerala.

The health authorities had drawn up a list of 1,949 people who had come in contact with the Nipah-affected persons to monitor their health condition.

The order directs that all educational institutions, including professional colleges should be closed till June 11.

His body fluids have been sent to the National Institute of Virology in Pune which is the only agency in the country to certify whether it was a case of Nipah virus or not. And while the new academic year began on Friday in all schools in the state, schools in Kozhikode will open only on June 5. The fact that other nations who had experienced the Nipah virus outbreak had taken months to detect the virus brings to the fore that the fast action by the Indian doctors shows their expertise, which is commendable, he said.

State Transport Minister A.K. Saseendran, who hails from this district, said the need of the hour is for people to be very cautious as even when things are under control, people have to cooperate. Two people, who died of this brain damaging illness, had undergone treatment at this hospital.

Union health ministry has issued a health advisory saying it's localised and there is no need to panic.

"Though the first phase is under control, we are expecting a second wave in accordance with the global pattern".

Meanwhile, as part of "Nipah alert", those who visited Kozhikode Medical College casualty, CT scan room and waiting room on May 14 and the Balussery Taluk Hospital on May 18 have been asked to contact the Nipah cell immediately. The number of suspected cases is 11. Thamarassery Bishop Mar Remigiose Inchananiyil in a circular also advised believers to follow the directions of authorities to help prevent the spread of this life-threatening virus. "As per the reports received, all are safe and keeping fine", he said. NCDC is monitoring the situation in various states through the Integrated Disease Control Surveillance Programme (IDSP) network.
