A man has died in China after being allegedly a victim of the Hantavirus.

Newsweek quoted China's state-run news agency Global Times as saying the man was killed Monday in Yunnan province when he was traveling by bus to Shan Dong Province.

The man's screening took place after the death, and 32 other people on the bus were tested, though it is believed that the virus did not transmit from one person to another.

Test results are not yet known and no name or cause of death has been specified in the report.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus of Hantavirus is usually transmitted to mice.

Each type of virus is linked to different types of mice and it is transmitted to humans when the virus particles in the animal's urine, waste and saliva reach the air through a person.

There is very little that can be transmitted to an individual by biting an infected rat, while this can happen even when a human touches the face or nose of an animal's urine, saliva, or waste. Eat stale or contaminated foods.

The virus causes the problem of Hanta Hemorrhage Fever Renal Syndrome or Hanta Virus Pulmonary Syndrome, but it is not yet clear which of the virus killed the person in China.

The US firm has clearly stated that there has been no case of the spread of human disease to another person in the United States, but there have been few cases in Chile and Argentina in which one of its variants is close to the people with the Andes virus. On leaving, people became ill.

In fact, at least 11 people were killed in Argentina last year as a result of the virus.

The World Health Organization said in an alert on the occasion that 29 cases were confirmed from October 2018 to January 2019, of which 60% were women or girls.

On this occasion, the World Health Organization reviewed the transition from one person to another, but no further details were available at that time.

But the virus is usually found in areas such as forests, farms or farms where its presence in mice is proven.

The disease usually causes symptoms such as headache, sneezing, fever, vomiting or nausea, cholera, and abdominal pain.

The case of the virus came to light in China when the outbreak of the new Novel Coronavirus has been largely controlled there, and that's why people on Twitter have started making memes about the Hantavirus, while enough people have They are also raising concerns, which is why hantavirus is at the top trend on Twitter today (March 24th) in Pakistan.

But as noted above, it is not as contagious as the coronavirus and has no specific treatment or vaccine, but the patient's condition can be managed immediately upon diagnosis.
