He is still unaware of his battle with Nipah, says survivor’s mother
Kochi: The college student who was affected by Nipah virus in its second outbreak in Kerala, will be discharged from Aster Medcity hospital on Tuesday. His mother’s prayers have finally got good results after two months.
“We are leaving for home on Tuesday. Still, he has no idea that he was battling Nipah. We will reveal it to him when we are back at home. Earlier, we thought that he was suffering from minor fever. So he was taken to a clinic close to our residence. We had never thought that he will suffer from such a deadly disease,” said his mother.
The youth was admitted to Aster Medcity on May 30. When doctors confirmed that he is under the attack of Nipah virus, his mother was praying for his healthy recovery.
“I am working in another hospital. So I was well aware of Nipah fever. The staff in the hospital was a great support for me. I won’t forget them in my life,” said the mother.
Though the mother visited her son while he was under treatment, he forgot about it in the next minute.
“He is surprised to hear from the visitors that they were praying for him. At present, he believes that he was suffering from high fever,” she added.
The youth has regained 90 percent of his health. But the mother is anxious that he changed a lot as he is not having his good old smile.
“I wish we will be able to see him as an energetic youth with a smiling face very soon,” said the mother.
