The Kerala Government on Sunday chose to lift the high alert sounded in Kozhikode and Malappuram districts that were hit by the deadly Nipah virus last month as the virus has been brought under control and its spread has been stopped. "The scare of this getting spread is finally over, as no more patients have tested positive, but a caution has to be there who are under observation, as they have to take complete rest", said Shailaja. "We have treated the family of those persons who were affected and died because of the Nipah virus".

"There is no need for the general public to be apprehensive about the safety of individuals and their family members".
