Chinese man dies of Hantavirus

Even as the World is captured by the Coronavirus epidemic and facing a calamity like never before . A Chinese man has tested positive for Hanta Virus .

Global Times tweeted that a man died while on his way back to work on a bus . He was tested positive for Hanta Virus while other 32 people on bus were tested .

Hanta Virus is not transferrable just like that of Coronavirus but rather from rodents to humans according to US Centre for Disease Control and Prevention .

If a person touch the saliva , urine , feces of a rat or other rodents and then touch his mouth, face or eyes then it can affect him and less frequently from an infected rodent's bite can transmit it .

It can cause haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome .

Symptoms of Hantavirus are

Vomiting , nausea and abdominal pain

New Rash , faint red spots on skin

Bodyaches, Headaches

Fever greater than 101-F

Breathing difficulty, Dizziness

Dry Cough

It can also cause vascular leakage, acute kidney failure, low blood pressure , acute shock too .

Though the symptoms of Hantavirus are somewhat similar with that of Coronavirus people should not be worried about it because it is not transmitted by humans .
