More deadly virus than corona: first patient death from monkey B virus in China

More deadly virus than corona: first patient death from monkey B virus in China, up to 80% risk of death from infection;  Learn about its symptoms and prevention

In the midst of the Corona crisis, there has been a case in China where a human has been infected with another virus and died.  A veterinarian has died after being bitten by a monkey B virus transmitted by monkeys.  This is the first case of human transmission of the virus in China.  How deadly the virus is can be estimated from the fact that the mortality rate of infected people is 70 to 80 percent.

 According to the Global Times, the first case of the death of a veterinarian from the monkey B virus has come to light in Beijing.  However, those who come in contact with a doctor are now completely safe.  The 53-year-old veterinarian was doing research on non-human primates at an institute.

 The doctor did research on two dead monkeys in March.  She then developed early symptoms of nausea and vomiting.  According to the report, the infected doctor was treated in several hospitals, but later died on May 27.

 First find out what is the Monkey B virus?

 VK Bhardwaj, a former consultant at ICMR, says the herpes B virus, or monkey virus, is usually transmitted by adult macaque monkeys.  The virus is also transmitted by rhesus macaques, pig-tailed macaques, and synomolgus monkeys, or long-tailed macaques.

 According to Dr. Bhardwaj, it is rare in humans, as the virus has not yet infected monkeys in India, but if a person becomes infected with the virus, he or she may have a neurological disease or a brain-related problem.

This way the virus can be transmitted from monkeys to humans

 According to Dr. Bhardwaj, the risk of infection in humans is very low at present, although exposure to infected macaque monkeys can transmit the virus to humans.

Symptoms of this virus appear within 1 month

 According to Dr. Bhardwaj, symptoms of the virus can be seen in humans within a month or even in 3 to 7 days.  Its symptoms are not the same in all people.

 Early detection can lead to treatment

 According to a report by the Boston Public Health Commission, about 70 percent of patients infected with the virus can die if not treated in time.  In this case, if you have been bitten or bitten by a monkey, it may be a carrier of the B virus.  In such cases, first aid should be started immediately.  Thoroughly clean the injured area with soap and water.

 Anti-viral drugs are available to treat the monkey B virus, but no vaccine has yet been developed, according to the commission's report.
