Nipah virus kills 40-70% more people than Covid virus

At a news briefing, Indian Council of Medical Research director general Rajeev Bahl said Nipah virus patients die more than Covid patients. The Nipah virus kills 40–70% more than the Covid virus. He also emphasized virus containment. He wondered why the cases keep coming up. We discovered bats contributed to the Kerala outbreak in 2018. How the disease transferred from bats to humans is unknown. Establishing the relationship was impossible. More learning is our goal this time. This always happens in the wet season.

The director general, Rajeev Bahl, said India would buy 20 more monoclonal antibodies from Australia to treat Nipah virus. Several Australian monoclonal antibodies arrived in 2018. Doses are available for 10 patients.

Six people have contracted the virus, and two have died. To contain and stop the infection, all schools, parks, and beaches have been shuttered. Meetings of any type are illegal. Basically, fruit bats carry the nipah virus from animals to people. It spreads directly between people or through contaminated food. Like COVID-19, the virus can induce sore throat, dizziness, tiredness, muscle pain, exhaustion, headache, stiff neck, light sensitivity, disorientation and blankness, seizures, and encephalitis.
