NEW DELHI: Kuwaiti Embassy in New Delhi issued a warning on Thursday to Kuwaiti citizens in India and those planning to travel to the nation to avoid regions affected by the deadly Nipah virus.
The Nipah virus has presumably affected a few regions in Kerala, Maharashtra and Goa resulting in the death of several people, the embassy said in a statement. Hence, the mission asked Kuwaiti citizens to avoid traveling to the affected areas until the current situation is over.
Meanwhile, the death toll from the Nipah virus in the south Indian state of Kerala rose to 11 amid fears that the deadly virus has spread to the neighboring state of Karnataka. (KUNA)
