Monkey fever confirmed

Gundlupet, (Chamarajanagar dist), Dec 3, 2012, DHNS : 0:16 IST
A medical report from the National Institute of Virology in Pune has confirmed that the recent death of monkeys in the Bandipur National Park limits was due to ‘kyasanur forest disease’ (KFD).

The blood samples were sent to the centre soon after 12 monkeys died of the suspected fever at Alegowdanakatte camp in Maddur division, said Pushkar, the tiger reserve project director.

The daily wage workers of the Forest department too were affected by the epidemic.

Following the report confirming the prevelance of the KFD virus, a meeting of the veterinarians and the officials of the Forest department has been convened to discuss preventive measures.

Soon, the residents in the surrounding villages will be administered a vaccine to check the spread of the infectious disease, he added.
