There has been no cases of Nipah reported from anywhere in the country.

Choubey was in West Bengal to meet several health officials and state ministers.

Choubey said that the families in Kerala, who have lost their kin because of the Nipah virus, have been treated in isolation and were totally out of danger.

State health minister K K Shylaja had said that the virus has been brought under control and its spread checked. The results of the 12 samples sent for examination were negative and no fresh cases of Nipah-suspect cases were admitted to the Medical College Hospital on Saturday.

The minister of state dismissed fears that people were returning to West Bengal from Kerala. The virus has been contained even in Kerala.

It recently announced a $32-billion recapitalisation plan to help them clean up their books ahead of the general election in 2019. Rijiju, after his meeting, said, "The government is making every effort to bring back Nirav Modi and Vijay Mallya".

"It has been made a decision to reopen educational institutions, schools and professional colleges on June 12, which was postponed due to the virus outbreak", she said claiming that the virus has been contained. Choubey, while interacting with media, said the virus is not epidemic and people should not be scared of it.

The total number of Nipah deaths is considered as 17 because the blood and body fluid samples of Sabith (26), the first person to die with Nipah symptoms, had not been subjected to analysis.

"As the situation has come under control, educational institutions will reopen on Tuesday as announced earlier by the District Collector", said the Minister.

The Kerala government today lifted the travel advisory it had issued in the wake of the outbreak of deadly Nipah virus last month, that has claimed 17 lives so far. "The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is closely monitoring the situation", the department under the Health Ministry added.

The Kerala government has advised travelers to avoid visiting the four districts of Kozhikode, Malappuram, Wayanad and Kannur as a precautionary measure.
