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

Nipah virus disease has affected two districts of Kerala-Kozhikode and Malappuram, and Government of India has issued the following guidelines. Roja, who was admitted to Kozhikode Medical College Hospital, was tested negative for NiV twice.

Apart from the 17 deaths in Kerala's Kozhikode and Mallapuram districts, some 94 people have been quarantined in their homes while 17 others are under treatment in hospitals.

At a press conference in Kozhikode on Saturday, Kerala Health Minister KK Shylaja said Roja, a resident of Thalassery in Kannur district, was undergoing treatment at the Pariyaram Medical College in Kannur.

Infection with Nipah virus is associated with inflammation of the brain also known as encephalitis.

"Officials in the state health department have confirmed that the message being circulated among people regarding Nipah virus is false and was passed around to create panic", he said.

A TBS spokesman confirmed on Sunday that Bee will address the subject when her show, " Full Frontal ", returns on Wednesday. While Bee's remark was completely inappropriate, her vulgarity pales in comparison to Barr's racism .

"The health officials periodically call them to check if they have developed symptoms". "So far there have been no cases of Bhutanese students being affected by the outbreak of Nipah virus".

So far, a total of 196 samples have been tested for Nipah, of which 18 have tested positive. Besides, after the death of two people due to the Nipah virus at the Taluk hospital in Balussery of Kerala, the hospital authorities asked several nurses and four doctors of the hospital to go on leave from Friday. The blood and body fluids of Sabith (26), the first person to die with symptoms, had not been collected for analyses as the death had occurred much before suspicions about the presence of the virus had come up. Avoiding consuming fruits partially-eaten by infected bats or drinking raw date palm sap/toddy/juice can also help prevent the virus from infecting humans.

Adding that Kerala is safe from the virus, Dr Wankedekar stated that around 300 doctors arriving in the state for the conference shows that the virus isn't a threat at all. Many cases identified in the current outbreak were infected through direct unprotected contact with other infected persons.

The IMA voted with its feet while taking a 300-strong contingent to Thiruvananthapuram for its conference, boosting the morale of the state administration in no small measure.
