What is the Hanta Virus?

Experts say the Hantavirus is not as deadly as the corona. The disease is spread by exposure to rats or measles. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, ‘rats are at risk of getting infected with the virus. Healthy individuals are at risk of getting infected by exposure to the deadly virus.

The lethal virus does not pass from one person to another. But if a person touches the hands, eyes, and nose after touching the rats, urine, etc., then the risk of getting infected is increased. When the virus is infected, one experiences fever, headache, pain all over the body, stomach ache, vomiting, diarrhea. If the treatment is delayed, the infected person’s lungs are filled with water, causing him or her to breathe.

Is the lethal virus deadly?

According to the CDC, the Hantavirus is deadly. The death toll is 38 percent. The case of the Hantavirus has surfaced in China at a time when the whole world is struggling with a coronavirus originating from Wuhan.
