New Virus is transmitted to humans from rodents, symptoms include fatigue and muscle aches

Beijing(ANN)-As the Coronavirus pandemic slows down in China, one person has died in the country from hantavirus, another infectious disease, local media reported on Tuesday.

Chinese daily The Global Times said a person from southwestern Yunnan province passed away after contracting the virus.

“A person from Yunnan Province died while on his way back to Shandong Province for work on a chartered bus on Monday,” the newspaper tweeted.

It added that 32 fellow passengers on the bus had also been tested. Information on their test results was not provided.

The viral disease was first reported in the U.S. in 1993. It is transmitted to humans by rodents such as mice and rats.

No human-to-human transmission of this virus has been found except for Argentina in 1996 when it was suggested that “strains of hantaviruses in South America may be transmissible from person to person,” according to U.S.-based center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The development comes at a time when the world is battling coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.

COVID-19 has killed more than 17,000 people in 169 countries or territories to date.

Unlike coronavirus, whose symptoms include cough, fever and breathing difficulties, hantavirus in the body leads to fatigue and muscle aches, as well as headaches
