A fresh victim of Nipah virus has been admitted to Khulna Medical College Hospital (KMCH).

Twenty-year-old Rashida is undergoing treatment since January 11 at the hospital. She is the first patient after 2016, suffering from the fatal infectious disease.

“A medical board has confirmed her infection by Nipah virus. As Rashida’s infection is a risk to other patients, she is being treated separately at the hospital’s Medicine unit 1,” said SM Kamal Hossain, chief of KMCH Medicine Department.

According to the physicians, around 80% Nipah virus patients die due to encephalitis. An awareness program of Khulna Divisional Health Office was effective to prevent this lethal viral disease in the last two years.

The Nipah virus is a type of RNA virus, which can spread between people and from other animals to people. Spread typically spreads direct contact with an infected source. The virus normally circulates among specific types of fruit bats.
