"Also, the crew is trying to minimalize the panic".
"The suspected cases will be kept under strict surveillance", National Health Mission (Karnataka) Director Rathan Kelkar told The New Indian Express.
A 20-year-old woman and a 75-year-old man are being treated for symptoms of the disease in the city of Mangalore after they travelled to Kerala and had contact with infected patients. "The situation is under control". Authorities have sealed the well and sent the bat blood samples for medical tests.
The main symptom of Nipah virus infection in humans is encephalitis, which means inflammation of the brain.
In 1998, when the virus was discovered in the Malaysian village of Nipah, it claimed 105 lives.
Over ten people have died in Kerala after coming in contact with the virus which is spread by fruit bats and pigs who happen to be the main carriers of the deadly disease.
The virus is most commonly hosted by fruit bats which jumps to humans, while it can also be passed from human to human. If not taken care of, these symptoms can even cause coma in a span of 24-48 hours. Most human cases are dealt with through supportive care.
The WHO has named Nipah as one of the eight priority diseases that could cause a global epidemic, alongside the likes of Ebola and Zika. So far, investigations lead officials to believe that the outbreak has not yet spread to other states, as they linked the initial deaths to a specific well that has been colonized by bats.
Kerala is on high alert over the infection and two control rooms have been opened in Kozhikode.
Sharif said rapid response teams comprising six to seven members had been formed in every district to deal with the possible outbreak of Nipah infections. "However if travellers wish to be extra conscious, they may avoid Kozhikode, Malappuram, Wayanad, and Kannur districts".
Keep your surroundings and home clean and motivate other also.
The incident comes at a time when deadly Nipah virus has killed 13 people residing in Kerela this week. In an advisory issued by Health Secretary Rajeev Sadanandan, it was stated that travelling to any part of Kerala was safe.
The first fatal cases in Kerala were reported on Saturday from a family in Kozhikode, as two brothers in their late 20s and their 50-year-old aunt died from the virus.
