Nipah virus resurgence has challenged the epidemiological surveillance and response system in our country. It has pointed towards our low healthcare system capacity and lack of a robust surveillance strategy. It demands to bring into light the concept of One Health, where human and animal health are tackled together. Enormous focus needs to be given on private sector integration with the disease surveillance system.
