Another deadly virus originated after Coronavirus. 1 dead – 36 infected. Hantavirus Another deadly virus.
At a time when the world is in the iron grips of the Covid-19 virus or more commonly known as the Coronavirus when nearly half a million people are infected as well as killing nearly 20000 people worldwide.
Hantavirus Another deadly virus
With the entire world in a panic over this infectious pandemic, and entire countries shutting down as well causing the rise of the phenomenon of ‘Social Distancing’; a new contender has arisen namely, ‘Hantavirus’ through which a Chinese man died in the province of Yunnan and supposedly infecting a bus of 32 passengers.
This is a rodent based or transmitted virus that can cause, according to the Center of Disease Control the following symptoms:
3. Muscle ache
4. Abdominal pain
7. Abdominal problems, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
8. Later symptoms may include: lungs fill with fluid and shortness of breath.
This might not be the best of times for a rival to come out and fight for domination against the Coronavirus.
People may panic even more knowing next to nothing about this new oncoming cataclysm.
However, a cataclysm is now but a minor blip on the radar.
This is because primarily a vaccine is already ready against it and it is only transmitted through a rodent(contact with its droppings, urine or nesting areas) and is not an airborne pathogen.
One should remain away from any rodents whatsoever.
However as maybe, everyone ‘s primary focus should be the Covid-19 virus nothing else. Stay at home.
Maintain social isolation and be safe and healthy.
Catch up on everything such as skills and relationships.
You all deserve a break.
