Kerala: Deadly Nipah virus contained

Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja addressed the press on Sunday and said that the deadly Nipah virus that struck Kozhikode district in Kerala in May and claimed 16 lives in the state has been finally contained and the last of the two positive cases have fully recovered.

Including Mohammed Sadik who was the first person suspected to have died of the infection, the death toll stands at 17 after subsequent outbreaks were dismissed off.

"We visited the two Nipah positive patients who have been completely cured and according to many, this is something rare. The scare of this getting spread is finally over, as no more patients have tested positive, but a caution has to be there who are under observation, as they have to take complete rest," Shailaja was quoted as saying.
