Tested negative for Nipah, 36-year-old Kerala woman dies under observation

Nipah Virus Be Careful In Consuming Fruits Says Delhi Government

A decision in this regard was taken at a high-level meeting here, chaired by state Health Minister K K Shailaja and additional chief secretary (health) Rajeev Sadanandan. People who had been in contact with Nipah-affected patients should remain in strict quarantine till the incubation period was over.

"We have issued instructions telling people not to consume fruits which have been bitten by bats", said Saikia adding however that they have not yet imposed any restrictions on people for visiting Kerala. This death created a panic in the state along the government.

Besides, officials have asked those people who made contact with the two, who died due to Nipah, to get in touch with the cell.

Dr Jay Deshmukh, senior physician, said the virus mainly causes inflammation of the brain or encephalitis. Her blood samples were tested twice for Nipah virus, but both came out negative. Sources confirmed that the condition of the other two patients is stable.

Wayanad District Collector S. Suhas has declared holiday for all educational institutions, including professional colleges, in the district till June 5 in the wake of the second wave of Nipah virus outbreak in the neighbouring district.

The death toll in Nipah virus outbreak in India has risen to 17, with a death of a 25-year-old man in the southern state of Kerala, officials said Friday.

The Health Ministry has also shared guidelines drafted by the National Centre for Disease Control with states and relevant stakeholders and also posted them on the Ministry's website. He is suspected to have contacted it from one of the earlier victims. Roja, who was admitted to Kozhikode Medical College Hospital, was tested negative for NiV twice.

In another precautionary measure, all nine staff members at Balussery taluk hospital in Kozhikode district have been given leave. Two other positive cases are undergoing treatment at the Kozhikode hospital.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) may have just delivered a huge vote of confidence to Kerala, reiterating its status as a safe destination even as it recovers smartly from isolated Nipah virus infections.
