Chinese man dies of Hanta virus

As the world continues to grapple with the spread of coronavirus, the death of a Chinese man from another virus has caused a temporary concern, which has been squandered after learning about the strain of the virus and the mechanism of transmission.

The man died while on a bus of 32 people on the road between Yunnan and Shandong provinces, and a post-mortem examination showed that he was infected with the Hantavirus, according to the state-run Global Times news website.

Authorities subjected 31 people on the bus to a medical check-up before being allowed to leave, while talk of the virus spread widely on social media, with the hashtag 'hantaviruses' on Twitter.

What is 'Hanta'?
The virus that killed the Chinese man is not new, it spreads mainly through rodents, and is not transmitted (rarely) between humans unlike Corona, and the virus can cause various diseases of humans.

The virus can enter the human body if the latter touches his eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine or nesting materials.

Consequently, people who are infected with the Hantavirus usually come into contact with the rodents that carry them, but what is worrying about it is that the virus can spread among people if the rodents spread in and around the house.

The risk is that the virus molecules move into the air because they will cause infection if someone breathes them into the body. Dust should, therefore, be avoided or the use of a vacuum cleaner, or even normal in a place that is likely to be infested by rodents, because this will make it move more strongly in the air.

Hanta includes some early symptoms such as fatigue, fever, muscle pain, headache, dizziness, chills, and stomach aches. The delayed symptoms of Hanta syndrome are between 4 and 10 days, namely shortness of breath.

According to U.S. research reports, each strain of the Hantavirus is associated with host rodent species. A person may become infected with the virus if bitten by an infected animal.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, rare cases of person-to-person.

the transmission has been recorded in Chile and Argentina, in people who have been in close contact with patients with the Andean virus.
