China: Dozens Infected With Potentially Fatal New Virus Transmitted From Animals

Fact checked

Health authorities are on high alert after reports of a new virus

China has now discovered a potentially deadly new virus that is believed to have been passed to humans by animals, particularly shrews according to reports.

There have been 35 confirmed human cases of The Langya henipavirus reported across two of China’s eastern provinces so far, Taiwan’s Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said. They added that the virus was new and had not affected humans before.

The patients are reportedly experiencing flu-like symptoms and the cases have not resulted in any deaths. Rodents like shrews, moles and hedgehogs are natural reservoirs for the virus.

Is this a case of ‘here we go again?’

The Mirror reports: Officially dubbed Langya henipavirus, it’s part of the Henipavirus family.

Two species of the same category have been identified in the past – the Hendra and Nipah viruses, the Sun reports.

The two viruses are said to create horrific illnesses with no known cure, vaccine or treatment.

World Health Organisation data classes the viral family as biosafety Level 4 – meaning it has a high risk of aerosol-transmission and of causing life-threatening disease with no way of minimising its severity.

It has a case fatality rate of between 40 and 75 per cent.

According to China’s state-run Global Times , the 35 infectees are still alive and none have developed serious illnesses.

The virus was detected after scientists checked patients who were running a fever, according to an article published in New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM)

The symptoms reported included a fever, fatigue, muscle pain, loss of appetite, a cough, nausea, vomiting and headaches.

The paper added that the patients had been in contact with animals before their diagnosis.

As the virus has been detected among a cluster of people, it’s likely it may already be passing between humans.

The paper reads: “There was no close contact or common exposure history among the patients, which suggests that the infection in the human population may be sporadic.

“Contact tracing of nine patients with 15 close-contact family members revealed no close-contact LayV transmission.

“But our sample size was too small to determine the status of human-to-human transmission for LayV.”

Scientists studying 25 animals found the most-obvious carrier of the Langya virus were shrews, a small mole-like mammal found in China.

We’re living through a “new pandemic era” according to experts, who say the next ‘Disease X’ could be just around the corner.

Disease X is a placeholder name adopted by the World Health Organisation three years ago, representing a hypothetical, as-yet unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.


    • The elites know Jesus is coming soon. They have never been this bold and brazen with their evil before. They know their time is short and they are desperate to have their one world order before our Lord Jesus Christ comes to judge the Earth.

    • Your infected with fear of the truth Your a deceiver and a low life. And we know your style and attitudes. So your a fool as well.

  1. Created by scientists working for the Mitary Industrialists and released in China for propaganda purposes again.

  2. Soon they will be wiping out every species of animal, birds, bunnies, bats, and humans, to fight multiple new viruses, as often as they do deadly shootings/terrorist operations.
    They will cordon off territories where it is spreading and quarantine them, so no one can go there, or leave there.
    These are demonic beings who worship diseases, death and Hell. They want to be God.
    God does not make any diseases, only the devil does, in his satanic laboratories.

  3. The ‘scientists’ have also said recently that ALL RAINWATER ON EARTH is unsafe to drink (what a coincidence, the CEO of Nestle said a few months ago that access to water was not a human right, and it needed to be controlled by the corporations)

    God created the rain. The rain gives plants life. The rain provided water for people before our modern day conveniences of indoor plumbing.

    These ‘scientific’ demons think they are greater than God.

  4. OVER MASSIFICATION has long been predicted as a deadly problem just as seen in livestocks and in nature.Eating wildlife from sweat shops is`nt a plus
