by Fathima

Well guys you must be wondering Why are virus outbreaks so common in kerala? Why on earth do we have to face all these deadly viruses?

Let me start by explaining the meaning of zoonotic disease, it means disease transmission from animals to humans. This is the reason why we see so many virus outbreaks in kerala. In the past year we have witnessed the deadly Covid 19 virus pandemic and then kerala also witnessed the Nipah virus outbreak and now the Norovirus outbreak. Kerala is popularly known as “God’s Own Country” due to its lush green landscapes and crystal clear beaches .The acquaintance between man and nature is so close in Kerala which leads to this timely virus outbreaks.

Norovirus is a gastrointestinal virus, derived from the Norwalk virus strain which is the most common cause of gastroenteritis in adults. It causes inflammation of the stomach and intestine lining leading to vomiting and diarrhoea. It is a contagious disease which means it can spread by contaminated surfaces, close contact with infected people, food prepared by the infected, vomitus and faeces.

Kerala reports 13 fresh cases of norovirus! Here's everything you need to  know about new contagious virus

Norovirus outbreak has been confirmed in Kerala and almost 11-13 people have been infected so far.
There is no such cause for concern as it is a self limiting disease. People who have been infected use ORS solution for replenishing the body’s lost solutes and prefer drinking boiled water.

As such the situation is under control and the Kerala government asks people to stay vigilant by following a few rules for combating the situation like, wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before consuming them. Drink boiled water, avoid eating from a crowded and unhygienic source.

Humans, viruses and all other microorganisms share a common habitat i,e earth and thus this series of outbreaks will continue until we remain on this planet earth. All we can do is to try maintaining distance and balance. Stay safe and stay healthy guys!
