She was under observation for Nipah virus as she showed symptoms similar to those caused by the virus. Throat swab sample of an infected patient was studied and decoded to come to this conclusion, the newspaper said. Basic symptoms of the Nipah virus are brain fever, nausea, vomiting, convulsions, choking, stomach pain, and fatigue.

The advisory, meanwhile, says people don't need to be scared - as it has only a local occurrence in two Kerala districts only - but asked people to be cautious while consuming these fruits.

The government is coordinating with all relevant sectors including zoonosis, wildlife, animal husbandry, human health, clinicians, pulmonologists, neurologists and private sector. Long term sequale of Nipah virus include persistent convulsions and personality changes. Subsequent outbreaks in India and Bangladesh have occurred with high fatality rate.

Two persons who had earlier tested positive for Nipah in Kozhikode were on Friday tested negative, bringing some relief to the authorities concerned.

Collector UV Jose said 1353 persons, relatives and close friends of those who had died due to Nipah virus, are being monitored in the district after the deadly outbreak of the virus infection in the state. As Nipah virus encephalitis can be transmitted from person to person, standard infection control practices and proper barrier nursing techniques are important in preventing hospital-acquired infections. The advisory issued by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on Thursday said that no incidence of the virus has been reported from the Capital.

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. Fifteen of those people have died, she said. A common example is consumption of raw date palm sap contaminated with infectious bat excretions. This is most commonly reported in the family and care givers of Nipah virus infected patients.

The death of Akihil triggered concerns as he was not in the contact list prepared by the health department.
