Two suspected Nipah cases surface in Karnataka's Sagar

Sources stated that a resident of Shiravante village in Sagar taluk, complained of fever two days ago.

Two suspected Nipah virus cases were reported in Sagar taluk this week. 

Sources stated that Mithun, a resident of Shiravante village, Sagar taluk, complained of fever two days ago.

He had apparently returned from Kerala last week where nearly ten people died due to Nipah virus infection.

Mithun's blood sample has been sent to the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, for an examination. Though Mithun has been asked to get admitted to the hospital, he hasn't so far. 

In another case, blood samples of two people of Maraturu village, were sent to NIV, Pune when two bats were discovered in an open well near their house.

Doctors have asked people to visit the nearby hospital if they are suffering from fever and cough.
