Nipah virus, dangerous and little known, spreads in India

I am currently spending two weeks working as an attending physician on the infectious diseases consult service at Boston Medical Center.

Luckily, I have an amazing team, including our ID fellow Dr. Muhammad Dhanani, our pharmacist Brian Spoelhof, PharmD, and two hotshot medical students, Paul George and Jamie Lim. Paul in particular is a real hotshot, having played varsity basketball in high school.

Anyway, the title of this blog post is about Nipah virus. Jamie and I just submitted a letter to the editor of the New York Times, Tom Feyer, about Nipah. We’ll see if it gets selected.

Anyway, it’s time to stop blogging and hit the basketball court for a workout. If I have any chance to beat Paul in H-O-R-S-E, I need to get some shooting in before I go to the hospital.
