There is no clear preventive or curative treatment for Nipah, a newly emerging disease spread by bats, pigs and people who have become infected, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

Eleven people have died in the outbreak, Rajeev Sadanandan, additional chief secretary for Kerala's Department of Health and Family Welfare, told CNN.
It said the government was conducting surveillance in Kozhikode district, from where most of the cases were reported, besides the neighbouring districts of Malappuram, Wayanad and Kannur. So far, investigations lead officials to believe that the outbreak has not yet spread to other states, as they linked the initial deaths to a specific well that has been colonized by bats.
"Samples of dead bats have been sent for testing to NIV, Pune, to ascertain the reason behind their deaths".
"People have been advised to keep distance from bats and pigs". Fruit bats are the natural host of the virus belonging to Pteropodidae family.
