While there are no vaccines at present against the Nipah Virus, experts have suggested that tackling risk factors might prove to be more effective in prevention. It's important to avoid any food/drink which has had the chance to be contaminated by bats. It's also important to maintain distance with an infected person and sanitize and wash hands and clothes afterward. For more, check the link.
