Risk of Nosocomial Transmission of Nipah Virus in a Bangladesh Hospital
Preview not available

Abstract

We conducted a seroprevalence study and exposure survey of healthcare workers to assess the risk of nosocomial transmission of Nipah virus during an outbreak in Bangladesh in 2004. No evidence of recent Nipah virus infection was detected despite substantial exposures and minimal use of personal protective equipment.
