Hantavirus: Another Dangerous Virus In China

Coronavirus has already covered the whole world and the countries have not yet come out of it whether another dangerous virus, Hantavirus, attacked China. A Man from Yunnan Province died of Hantavirus in China while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a bus on Monday. 32 other people on the bus were also tested for the virus.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Hantaviruses are a family of viruses which are spread mainly by rodents and can cause varied diseases in people.
It may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) and haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
The disease is not airborne and can only spread to people if they come in contact with urine, feces, and saliva of rodents and less frequently by a bite from an infected host.
Symptoms:
Early symptoms of HPS include fatigue, fever, and muscle aches, along with headaches, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems. If left untreated, it can lead to coughing and shortness of breath and can be fatal, with a mortality rate of 38 percent, according to CDC.
While the initial symptoms of HFRS too remain the same, it can cause low blood pressure, acute shock, vascular leakage, and acute kidney failure.
