According to a report in China’s Global Times, the man was on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a chartered bus when he passed away. The more shocking update is that 32 other people have been tested for the same and are awaiting their test results.

With the death report finding its way on the social media, the netizens were seen in sudden panic. In India, too, it quickly went on to trend on Twitter with netizens tweeting their thoughts.

What is Hantavirus?

As mentioned in the website of Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Hantavirus is caused by rodents. It can spread in humans who come in contact them. The website description reads, “Rodent infestation in and around the home remains the primary risk for hantavirus exposure. Even healthy individuals are at risk for HPS infection if exposed to the virus.”

While the relief remains that this is not a kind of disease that spreads from human to human, but a person can get infected if they have touched their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials, as per a fact sheet of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The symptoms for Hantavirus are similar to Covid-19 which includes fever, headache, abdominal pain among others.
