A person from Yunnan Province died while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a chartered bus on Monday. He was tested positive for hantavirus. The other 32 people on the bus were tested. Reports said 32 other people have been tested positive, the report added.

The news on Hantavirus set the panic-button across the globe on Tuesday. People started panicking that it was another COVID-19-like killer ready to cause a new pandemic. It has been found that humans who contract the Hantavirus usually meet rodents rats and mice. Rodents are the carrier of Hantavirus. Hantavirus can be contracted if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials.


Early symptoms of Hantavirus include fever, headache, muscle ache, abdominal pain, dizziness, chills, and abdominal problems. Hantavirus patients also have symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Late symptoms include lungs fill with fluid and shortness of breath.
