Zoonosis related emerging infectious diseases
especially have been recognised as significant global
health issues. The recent outbreaks of West Nile virus
encephalitis in New York and avian influenza in Hong
Kong confirm this. Another illustration is the outbreak
of Nipah viral encephalitis in Malaysia in 1998, which
was brought on by a newly identified and deadly virus.
The Nipah virus an epidemic, which resulted in
significant economic loss and human misery, was
summarised in this article along with its epidemiological,
clinical, and laboratory findings. However, based on the
principles of homoeopathy, it is possible to offer
potential medications for Nipah patients based on the
available symptomatology, i.e., a group of medications
that have been shown to cause symptoms and
pathogenesis that are similar in healthy humans. In
2018, a Nipah virus (NiV) outbreak with a 91% (21/23)
case fatality rate occurred in Kerala, India's Kozhikode
district. 2019 observed only one case in the Ernakulam
district that fully recovered. We discussed the Kerala
State Government's and the Indian Council of Medical
Research's response to and control strategies for the
2019 NiV outbreak.
