A virus named after Kampung Sungai Nipah, a village in Malaysia, where it was first discovered in 1998-99.

According to a paper by Dr K B Chua, who was a virologist in training at the University of Malaya when the disease broke out, “the outbreak of febrile encephalitis in humans was preceded by the occurrence of respiratory illness and encephalitis in pigs in the same region,” he writes, adding however, that at that point, the cause of swine mortality was assumed to be classical swine fever.
