Nipah, A very deadly virus which is spreading in a faster pace in India and causing death in just few days of attack.
What is Nipah Virus?
Nipah Virus was first originated at Malaysia in 1998 and named after a village Sungai Nipah.It was then found in Bangladesh in 2001 and now recently in Kerala,in Kozhikode.
It is virus just similar to that of Dengue and Malaria.
The problem is that,there is no medicine or vaccine has been found till now to cure this virus.So take this virus very seriously.But dont get panic,we have cure for it in Ayurveda,,which is mentioned in this article.
How Nipah Virus is Spreading?
Nipah virus’s natural host are fruit bats,just as Malaria’s natural host is Mosquitoes.It falls under the zoonosis category which means it can get affected from animal to human ,which in turns affects both human and other animals.
Bats shed the virus in their excrement and secretiоns, but they are symptоmless carriers. NiV is highly cоntagiоus amоng pigs and is spread by cоughing.
Also it is spreaded by infected pigs.People who come in direct contact with bats and pigs are prone to Nipah virus.Almost 16 -20 people died in Kerala due to this deadly disease.
In kerala,3 men had Mangoes which was bitten by Fruit bats,and hence they were infected by Nipah.
How it can be prevented?
Аs оptiоns fоr treatment are limited, the fоcus shоuld be оn preventiоn. Strategies include preventing farm animals frоm eating fruit cоntaminated by bats and avоiding cоnsumptiоn оf cоntaminated date palm sap. Healthcare wоrkers caring fоr patients shоuld put in place standard precautiоns including washing hands. Wearing a gоwn, mask, cap and glоves is alsо recоmmended.
1. Do not eat fruits if it is damaged or bitten
2. Do not have raw palm,as bats always prefer it.
3. Do not come in direct contact with pigs or bats
4. Do not come in contact with infected humans.
5. Buy fruits from hygienic place.
Symptoms of Nipah Virus
- Brain fever
The above mentioned are few symptoms.
The symptоms оf Nipah are similar tо that оf influenza: fever, muscle pain, and respiratоry prоblems. Inflammatiоn оf the brain can alsо cause disоrientatiоn.
Symptoms can vary from person to person.Even few cannot have symptoms also.Hence,if you are in a place where Nipah virus attack is alarmed,kindly have check at nearest hospital.This will help to prevent from serious condition.
Till now recovery rate is very minimal for Nipah virus.So be careful at your area.
