Overcrowding and unfavorable environment causes various adverse effects on human and animal health i.e. new vector borne diseases, skin problem like allergy, asthma. Several times many untreatable viral disease becomes a serious death threat in many countries. Nipah virus emerged in humans in 1998 in Malaysia, with pigs as the intermediate host. Nipah virus was later also identified in India and Bangladesh in 2001, with the flying fox (Pteropus spp.) as the natural host, although no intermediary animal host was found in outbreaks there. Of the zoonotic paramyxoviruses, Nipah virus is responsible for the greatest number of human cases, with several hundred cases and at least 215 deaths reported. In India recently sudden outbreak of nipah virus in Kerla causes several deaths of animals as well as humans. The review emphasized on nipah virus transmission, symptoms and diagnosis methods.
