China Reports First Hantavirus Death. Should You be Worried?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The world is clearly not prepared to hear about another virus yet. When China reported a death due to hantavirus, social media lost its shit. Like coronavirus, hantavirus doesn’t have a cure… but it can’t be transmitted from one person to another and is spread mainly by rodents.

Like coronavirus wasn’t spelling doom, we have one more virus hitting headlines.

As Covid-19 tightens its grip over 177 countries, with 3,82,000 infections and 16,500 deaths globally, the world woke up to yet another shocking news from China: A man from Yunnan province died after he was tested positive for hantavirus.

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. Other 32 people on bus were tested.

Hantavirus immediately started trending on social media with over 162K tweets in a few hours, as everyone started questioning the possibility of another pandemic. Millennials did what millennials do best – make memes.

But what exactly is the hantavirus and how does it spread?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Hantaviruses are a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents and can cause varied disease syndromes in people worldwide. Hantaviruses may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (a fatal respiratory disease) or hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). Each hantavirus serotype has a specific rodent host species and is spread to people via aerosolised virus that is shed in urine, feces, and saliva, and less frequently by a bite from an infected host.”

The relieving fact is that HPS can’t be transmitted from one human to another.

“Although HPS can’t be passed on from person to person, touching eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials that contain the virus can infect a healthy individual,” states Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hantaviruses are a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents and can cause varied disease syndromes in people worldwide.

The hantavirus is not a new virus and already exists around the world. Sporadic cases of hantavirus have surfaced in India as well in the past, infecting 28 people of the Irula tribe engaged in rodent trapping in the Vellore district of Tamil Nadu in 2008. More recently, Mumbai recorded its first ever hantavirus death after a 12-year old boy from Colaba was diagnosed with HPS.

Hantavirus has a higher fatality rate than the novel coronavirus, at 36 per cent. Just like the coronavirus, there is no specific treatment, cure or vaccine for the hantavirus infection. Rodent proofing your house and offices is the best known preventive measure for the virus.

    [“Sorry to say this so clear : an other BLUE SHIT. Shall now all little animals be excecuted? Lets hunt the two-ledged RATS??? Where shall be started? The BLUE one first, than the RED and than the WHITE one in ROM? or all together at one time? GITMO is not big enough. With 7 G no prob. One click an that's it. Not welcome, but will come. The BigStorm is on.

    How many aggressive Bacterial are in a body, human and animals and in the environment, as a part of the balanced System, to keep the System in the condition as it has to be, following the Natural Rights of the entire cosmic Energy-System? Millions? Trillions? What ever " Science" is detecting and making a name of it, the name is MONEY an Account, ready for the BigPigPharma Business, the horde is participating as Big Commercial Business-Colaborateurs, to make their profit. The question which “ Scientists” are involved, The Good one, or the private-commercial bad one as contractors, as Koch and Hopkins in their pc-Instituts ans Foundations and Rockefellers-GATEs MONEYeaters.

    How would Margret Fletcher, (Murder she wrote)investigate? Ask Colombo, in the streets of San Francisco, while they still exist. 1906, an extremely horrible and important year. Which reminds me to the "The Devil's Dictionary " by Ambrose Bierce, The Town Crier. This Dictionary might obviously be confused with the Black's Law Dictionary, if these " satiric Quotes" are compared with the here and know on the blue msm market. like :

    “Diplomacy, n. The patriotic art of lying for one's country.” [Pompeo, as a dustpartical of the sandpit)

    “Diagnosis, n. A physician's forecast of the disease by the patient's pulse and purse.” [ Pest&Cholera, Plandemic-Panic-Coorp. vide-vide 201 9-202 0)

    “Finance, n. The art or science of managing revenues and resources for the best advantage of the manager.” [Private Commercial Dictatorship, by Rothschilds World-MONEY-Empire with all Central-Banks and FED and Dep.of the Treasury. )

    And all given and lived Fictions, it doesn't matter, if Good or Bad, is based on : " An apparatus with which we think that we think"

    However, w h a t is unmistaken clear spoken out the Plandemic-Panic-Catastrophes to put down the Peace, Freedom, Humanity and the Economy to install 2 O 1 ? 911-2 00 1 Many to one : The ENGSOCZ..The One-world-satanic Government with their New World Order with the English-Socialist-Zionism, a blue private commercial Communism, CROWD-CONTROL, MIND-CONTROL, SLAVERY, HardCoreSatanicPORN with kids-teen-adults, as living Pizza to sacrificed them at the 7th day of AmunRa, the God of Sun to worship Satan/EL, which is BA'AL... They call it SafetyFiirst PublicSafety and selling their HealthCare as MAMA is protecting YOU, papa is in war, by taking away all RIGHTS, because " WEEEEE" have to act so, because to many mice are against our Zionism and Communism and unsocial terrorism... The focus must be on 5 G.........not any bad natural bacterial, as long the are not artificial chemical industrialized one, enriched with barium aluminium, glyphosate, what the hell has in their shelves....5 G is the invisible weapon with the bio-weapon and Chemical-weapon and weather weapon. The Energy-Weapon is the NUK-Bomb an this bomb is blowing up not only the body, its blowing up our brain and heart, body and soul. 5G IS THE REASON !!! The rest is GLADIO-FALSE-FALGE-OPERATION under the War Agreement HLKO from 1907. Its still war by the Satanic Zionistic” The Rats-The Fog-The Dark”, with “the Eyes of the Darkness” and they call it TRADE WAR. Lab201 EVENT2020 COVID20 in September..Please take notice : 5th April 2020 CET : 04:45 is a worldwide spiritual meditation with all spirits and Angles under the direction and support by the White Brotherhood.
