FLASH: Coimbatore: Special precautionary measures being taken at Coimbatore Corporation Zoo to prevent spread of Nipah Virus, as several bats travel between Kerala & Coimbatore (a short distance from the border with the neighbouring state of Kerala) every day. Tamil Nadu. We have asked workers in zoo to clean floors to clear saliva & droppings that can spread the virus. We also spray bleaching powder all around the area. We've allotted three teams to identify it in dead bats but haven't got any case: S Nathan, director, Coimbatore Corporation Zoo
