          • Outbreak investigation of Nipah Virus Disease in Kerala, India, 2018
            Govindakarnavar Arunkumar, PhD R Chandni, MD D T Mourya, PhD S K Singh, MD Rajeev Sadanandan, MPhil Preeti Sudan, MPhil Balram Bhargava, MD, DM, FRCP NIPAH: Nipah Investigators People And Health
            The Journal of Infectious Diseases, jiy612, https://doi.org/10.1093/infdis/jiy612
            Published: 26 October 2018 Article history

            Abstract
            Background
            Nipah Virus (NiV) is a highly fatal emerging zoonotic virus with potential threat to global health security. Here we describe the characteristics of the NiV outbreak occurred in Kerala, India during May -June 2018.

            Methods
            We used real-time RT PCR in throat swabs, blood, urine and CSF to detect NiV. Further, the viral genome was sequenced and subjected to phylogenetic analysis. We conducted an epidemiological investigation to describe the outbreak and to elucidate transmission dynamics.

            Results
            During May 2 29, 2018, 23 cases were identified including the index case; 18 were lab-confirmed. This NiV was closer to the Bangladesh lineage. Median age of cases was 45; 15 (65%) were male. The median incubation period was 9.5 days (6 14 days). Of the 23 cases, 20 (87%) had respiratory symptoms. The case fatality rate (CFR) was 91%; two cases survived.. Risk factors for infection included close proximity (touching, feeding or nursing an NiV infected person) enabling exposure to droplet infection. The public health response included isolation of cases, contact tracing, and enforcing hospital infection control practices.

            Conclusion
            This is the first recorded NiV outbreak in South India. Early laboratory confirmation and immediate public health response contained the outbreak.
