The circular, issued by Bishop Mar Remigiose Inchananiyil said that baptisms, house warmings, marriages and prayer gatherings which can be postponed, should be re-scheduled considering the special circumstances in the wake of Nipah.

Kozhikode: As the Nipah virus scare mounts tension in Kerala, the state government has chose to delay the re-opening of schools and colleges in Kozhikode till June 12, which has deferred the examinations barring the Union Publis Service Commission (UPSC).

"Research is needed to better understand the ecology of bats and NiV", stresses World Health Organization, adding that there are no specific treatments available for Nipah virus disease.

No confirmed cases of the virus have been found yet outside Kerala despite fears it had spread. And scientists say that the Nipah virus has two strains - Malaysia (NiVM) and Bangladesh (NiVB). These doctors and nurses had come in contact with two Nipah virus patients who died. There's no vaccine for the deadly virus, which gets transferred from animals to humans.

Being a viral infection, there are no specific drugs available to treat Nipah. Subsequent outbreaks in India and Bangladesh have occurred with high fatality rate. "So far there have been no cases of Bhutanese students being affected by the outbreak of Nipah virus". Earlier, samples of cattle, goats, pigs, and insect bats that were sent were also tested negative. She later fell sick and was hospitalized at the Pariyaram Medical College in Kannur. In the last two days, three more persons died due to Nipah, forcing the authorities to sound alert in inner regions of Kozhikode.

The government has asked people to "stop consumption of raw date palm sap" and take special precaution when it comes to consuming mangoes that have fallen off trees and lying under them this season. People were panicking after reading about the virus.

The virus transmission happens through infected bats or by their bite. "So far 1407 people are in the contact list". The spread of virus from humans to humans is very rapid and once infected more than half die.
