REPORT: Matt Gaetz proposes bill affecting all China-owned businesses in the U.S.

Yesterday the Global Times informed followers of the reason behind the worker’s death on social media, tweeting: ‘He was tested positive for #hantavirus. Other 32 people on bus were tested.’

The Daily Mail noted that China is just beginning to lift the quarantine put into place after the deadly coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, ravaged the country. News of the man’s death from yet another virus sparked panic across China, and prompted the hashtag #hantavirus to trend on social media.

Swedish scientist Dr Sumaiya Shaikh weighed in, responding to one Twitter user, “Unless you are planning to ingest body fluids of those infected with #Hantavirus. No, it will not get to you.”

In another tweet, Shaikh added, “The #Hantavirus first emerged in 1950s in the American-Korean war in Korea (Hantan river). It spreads from rat/mice if humans ingest their body fluids. Human-human transmission is rare. There were even vaccines developed for it. Please do not panic, unless you plan to eat rats.”
