Daily Express reported on Saturday that several experts started warning the outbreak of Nipah virus as there are “no rapid testing, good treatments, or vaccines available.”
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health member Dr. Emily Gurley asserted that the virus’ ability to transmit from human to human should be limited.
She explained that every Nipah infection in a person forms an opportunity for the virus to be more transmissible.
Gurley underscored: “That makes it a disease that we should be worried about, currently, it’s just not very infectious. But, if it became more transmissible, that would be a very worrisome development.”
