After Corona, new Hantavirus appears in China

Even as the coronavirus outbreak takes the world by storm, a number of other diseases are also rearing their ugly heads. Cases of swine flu and bird flu have already been reported in India and other countries. Now, a man from China has tested positive for hantavirus.
China’s Global Times tweeted that the man from Yunnan Province died while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a bus on Monday. The 32 other people on the bus were also tested for the virus.
Reports said 32 other people have been tested positive, the report added.
The news on Hantavirus set the panic-button across the globe on Tuesday.
People started panicking that it was another COVID-19-like killer ready to cause a new pandemic.
It has been found that humans who contract the Hantavirus usually come into contact with rodents — rat and mice.
Rodents are carrier of Hanta virus.
Hantavirus can be contracted if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials.
Early symptoms of Hantavirus include fever, headache, muscle ache, abdominal pain, dizziness, chills and abdominal problems.
Hantavirus patients also have symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Late symptoms include lungs fill with fluid and shortness of breath.
