She could not even see her son for the last time and permitted the doctor to conduct the last rites. "His family didn't want to come for the funeral, so two of my colleagues and I did their last rites". I did not have to think twice. and I made a decision to perform all Hindu rites for the boy as I wanted him to go on his final journey with all the dignity. "It was my duty.", he said. After relatives of a 53-year-old man informed him that they were not participating in the funeral. Another last journey which tugged his heart was when he assisted the husband of a 19-year-old woman.

No additional cases of the Nipah virus, which can cause encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, or respiratory diseases, have been found, they said Thursday. Extreme care and standing operating procedures laid down by the experts of National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) were followed for handling Nipah affected bodies during the cremation and burial as exposure to Nipah virus (NiV) is highly hazardous.
