Hantavirus kills man in China, 32 others tested, report says


A man in China who died on Monday reportedly tested positive for hantavirus, leading officials to test an additional 32 people who had traveled on a bus with him before his death, Global Times reported. The rat-borne illness, which U.S. health officials say cannot be transmitted from person-to-person, is typically passed to patients when they breathe in air contaminated with the virus through rodent droppings.



Oh geez, another chance for paranoia to set in. At least this one can't spread person-to-person, but that it happened at all is horrifying.
