The Goa government has formed a committee, headed by the state's Health Secretary, to draw a protocol to deal with Nipah virus cases, if any, in the state.

"The samples of fruit bats have been taken from the place where four deaths on account of Nipah virus from one family took place near here".

All animal samples, including those from bats, cattle, goats and pigs from the southern state of Kerala, sent to the National Institute of High Security Animal Diseases, in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, were negative for Nipah, said animal husbandry officer A. Mohandas. "That is why we were giving priority to trace some 753 contacts who were in touch with the confirmed cases. We are taking all steps to check the spread of such false messages through social media", the District Collector said.

Nipah is hard to diagnose but symptoms include fever, vomiting and headaches.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), these signs and symptoms can progress to coma within 24-48 hours.
