In the editorial titled “Nipah virus epidemic in southern India and emphasizing “One Health” approach to ensure global health security”, published on pages 275-283, Issue 2, Volume 7 of Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care[1], the figure 2 on page number 278 is reprinted from Nipah virus: transmission of a zoonotic paramyxovirus, published in Current Opinion in Virology in 2017. Hence, the foot note statement for figure 2 on page number 278 should correctly read as:

Figure 2: Schematic representation of three modes of Nipah virus spread: (1) bat-to-human, (2) animal-to-human, and (3) human-to- human (including nosocomial) (53). Reprinted from Current Opinion in Virology, Bronwyn Anne Clayton, Nipah virus:

transmission of a zoonotic paramyxovirus, Pages 97 - 104., Copyright (2017), with permission from Elsevier.

The statements on page number 278 with correct reference citation should read as:

Strong evidence indicative of human-to-human transmission of NiV was found in Bangladesh in 2004 (30). The various modes of transmission are described below in [Figure 2](53).

The new reference added to the article and included in the reference list as “53” is stated below:

“Clayton BA. 2017. Nipah virus: transmission of a zoonotic paramyxovirus. Curr Opin Virol 22:97-104.”
