Re: Nipah Virus Outbreak IN Kerala-2018

How did a bat in Kerala become a carrier for Bangladesh strain of Nipah Virus? And if it travelled from bat to bat from Bangladesh, how come there were no outbreaks of Nipah virus all along the path? Ramana sir, Bats can travel thousands of kilometers every year. Unless sampling and testing is done...

Genuine question. The video is a great initiative. But I thought even radio signals would take at least 4 minutes or so to reach mars from earth.

Of course they cant. But an amphibious assault ship with a few hundred(?) marines may be enough to secure their atolls of interest or provide security to the incumbent dictator? If they go in as "peace keeping force" may be on invitation, imagine the loss of face for India!
