About Disease

Nipah virus (NiV) is an enveloped RNA virus from the genus Henipavirus, in the Paramyxoviridea family, which also includes the closely related Hendra virus (HeV). There are two genetically distinct strains of NiV, Malaysia strain (NiV-M) and Bangladesh strain (NiV-B). The NiV-B strain has significantly higher mortality rates. NiV caused a major outbreak in 1998, due to transmission from bats to pigs and humans in Southeast Asia. In response, 1.1 million pigs were culled to prevent transmission. Smaller outbreaks have occurred every year since its emergence. Although pigs are the primary NiV-amplifying species, several other animal species are susceptible to NiV infections, including dogs, cats, goats, horses, and sheep. Pigs with subclinical infections were a major cause of the first NiV outbreak and continues to pose a biosecurity risk due to the lack of treatments or vaccines.
