No country has reported more human Nipah virus cases in the past two decades than Bangladesh, which the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research (IEDCR) has reported more than 300 since 2001.

During the past month, the IEDCR added another case/death on the 2020 tally, bringing the total cases to seven and deaths to five.

There was no explanation or additional details where this case came from or the circumstances involved.

This website reported 6 cases/4 deaths on January 30, 2020. When we reported the totals to date in 2021 on September 10, (2 cases/0 deaths), the 2020 totals were the same.

This is what IEDCR is reporting today:
