A person has died in the Yunnan province of China on Monday from the Hanta virus after being hit by a Corona virus. The victim was returning to Shandong province on a bus to work. He was positive with the Hanta virus. The health of 32 other people traveling in the bus was also checked.
Fear has spread on social media after the Chinese government news agency Global Times reported the incident. A large number of people have been tweeting that they may not become an epidemic like the virus. This will happen if people do not stop eating live animals.
Shivam writes that the Chinese are now working on another epidemic project. This Hanta virus is caused by eating mice. In the midst of this conversation running on social media, let’s find out what the Hunta virus is and is as deadly as Corona’s?
Know What is Hanta Virus?
Experts believe that the Hanta virus is not as deadly as the corona virus. Contrary to the corona this does not propagate through the air. This is spread only by the human being exposed to rodents or squirrels. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, staying in or out of rats’ homes raises the risk of contracting the Hanta virus.
Although the Hanta virus does not spread from one person to another. But if a person touches his eyes, nose and mouth after the feces of the rat and urine, he is at increased risk of getting infected with the hanta virus. The virus can cause symptoms like fever, headaches, body aches, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea in humans. If it is delayed in treatment, the infected human lungs also have water that causes them to breathe.
Is the Hanta Virus Fatal?
According to the CDC, the Hanta virus is lethal. The death toll for infected persons is estimated at 5%. This case of the Hanta virus in China has come at a time when the whole world is struggling with the epidemic of Corona virus emanating from Wuhan. Corona virus has killed 16,500 people worldwide so far. So far, 3,82,824 people worldwide have been infected with the corona virus. The prevalence of the corona virus has increased so much that it has now spread to 196 countries.
