The Nipah virus hits a person instantly. Attacks the lungs, making it impossible to breathe freely, and the brain, causing it to become inflamed and swollen. World Health Organization experts confirm that Nipah has a dangerous pandemic potential and is extremely deadly.
Among other things, the virus was detected in a 12-year-old boy who died shortly after being infected. Subsequently, two medical staff also tested positive for Nipah. It is not known exactly how many people had contact with the sick boy. And the new epidemic may be particularly dangerous for India, as the country is still struggling with the coronavirus and over half a million inhabitants have died from COVID-19. There are fears that the new Nipah virus epidemic will spread all over India and then spread worldwide.
