EA Announces Battlefield V Launching Worldwide on October 19
DICE has officially unveiled and shown off gameplay from Battlefield V , with more details coming out as the hours go past today. EA Access and Origin members will get access on October 11, a week ahead of the October 19th launch date.

An expert team from the National Centre for Disease -Control (NCDC), including its director, Dr Sujeet Kumar Singh and Head of Epidemiology, Dr S K Jain, and a high-level team from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) are already in Kerala to take stock of the situation. Apart from the 10 deaths, 94 people have been quarantined inside their homes while nine others are under surveillance in hospitals in the two districts. Treatment for human cases is management treatment along with intensive supportive care.

After reviewing the cases of all the patients who have lost their lives, the Central High-level Team is of the view that the Nipah virus disease is not a major outbreak and is only a local occurrence.

No. Previous outbreaks have been reported in India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, Laos and Malaysia. Fruit bats are the natural host of the virus belonging to Pteropodidae family. Symptoms of this virus have been detected in a 20-year-old woman and in a 75-year-old man in the city of Mangalore after they traveled to adjacent state, Kerala and had a contact with infected patients.

Health officials are investigating the outbreak in Kerala, where the first death was witnessed last week, have traced it to a well overspread with bats from which the victim drew water.
