Just as the world has yet to overcome the dreaded Coronavirus, China is launching yet another deadly virus, Hantavirus
A man from the Chinese province of Yunnan tested positive for Hantavirus on Monday.
He died while en route to Shandong Province to work on a chartered bus, China’s Global Times reported. 32 other people have been tested, the report added.
After his death, Hantavirus became a trend on social media, panicking people that it was another COVID-19 ready to start another pandemic.
Contrary to popular belief and WhatsApp university teaching us about it, let’s get a reality check on Hantavirus.
Firstly, unlike coronavirus, Hantavirus is not airborne. People who contract the Hantavirus usually come into contact with rodents that carry the virus.
