Nipah first jumped from pigs to farmers in Malaysia in 1999, and luckily, there are no current Nipah outbreak s in the world. However, Dr. Melanie Saville, head of vaccine research and development at the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, said to The Sun, "Nipah is one of the viruses that could absolutely be the cause of a new pandemic. Several things about Nipah are very concerning."

Additionally, Nipah has an incubation period of up to 45 days, which means that an infected person can potentially spread the virus to unsuspecting people for more than a month before falling ill. For more information on this story, check out this link here.
