At least 40 countries and regions have enforced nationwide restriction measures as the battle against Coronavirus (COVID-19) intensifies with more than 380,000 reported cases of infection globally.
Meanwhile, a person from Yunnan Province in China died while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a chartered bus on Monday. He was tested positive for Hantavirus. Other 32 people on bus were tested.
For starters, Hantavirus is not a new virus. Humans may become infected with Hantaviruses through contact with rodent urine, saliva, or feces. Hantavirus is named for the Hantan River area in South Korea where an early outbreak was observed.
Hantavirus is not a deadly disease, because vaccine is available for the same.
