India steps up hunt for origin of mysterious brain-damaging Nipah virus
Updated : May 28, 2018 07:10 PM IST
All animal samples, including those from bats, cattle, goats and pigs from Kerala, sent to the National Institute of High Security Animal Diseases, in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, were negative for Nipah.
The department was now collecting samples of fruit bats from Perambra, the suspected epicentre of the infection and nearby areas.
The dead bats were discovered on the roof of a school and had triggered a new Nipah scare last week.
