While the world is still battling the Covid-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, scientists are now warning of a new threat to our health. This is the deadly Chapare virus.
The whole world is currently struggling to control the coronavirus pandemic and to contain new infections as well as possible. It is of paramount importance that hospitals do not reach their limits so that everyone who needs medical care can receive it.
New deadly virus: chapare
Now it seems the second wave of Covid-19 is not the only thing worrying scientists right now. Researchers from the US health authority CDC are said to be on the hunt for a new deadly virus called Chapare.
The virus bears the name of the Bolivian province where outbreaks first appeared in 2004. First of all, infection is thought to be possible only by contact with rat urine or sewage.
However, as a result of the small but extremely fatal case analysis in 2019, it appears that the virus can be transmitted from person to person and is very similar to the Ebola virus.
His symptoms include fever, headache and abdominal pain, rashes, organ failure, and bleeding, all of which can be fatal. There is still no cure for the virus.
Despite the virus’s high mortality rate, experts believe that the disease is relatively unlikely to spread worldwide – fortunately, heat and the use of disinfectants keep an eye on the virus.
