Two siblings die due to unknown virus in Bangladesh, doctors trying to find cause

At least two minor siblings died due to an unknown virus at Chuniapara village in Bangladesh's Rajshahi area after eating Boroi (jujube), media reports said.

According to reports, physicians also took their parents to isolation.

The deceased siblings were identified as Muntaha Marisha, 2, and Muftaul Masia, 5.

Abu Hena Mostafa Kamal, in-charge of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital, told Prothom Alo that the two siblings ate the fruits before falling sick. 

“The domestic help collected those from the ground under a tree, and those were not cleaned up," the doctor said quoting the father when he was asked whether the fruits were cleaned before consumption.

The physician initially suspects that it might be the Nipah virus that led the two minor girls to death, the newspaper reported.

Physicians sent samples to Dhaka to know the exact cause of the death.
