What is Hanta Virus?

Hantaviruses are a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents. According to the CDC report, this virus is spread by mice. But usually it does not spread from one person to another.

According to experts, the virus is spread in humans through exposure to mice or squirrels. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, rats inside and outside the home can become the primary cause of infection of hanta virus.
Even if a person is healthy, there is a risk of getting infected by the virus. According to the CDC, the death rate in Hanta virus is 38% and there is no 'specific treatment' of this disease.

How to get Hanta virus? Measures to protect against virus

The easiest way to prevent hanta virus is that rats cannot reach homes or offices or living areas. Keep an eye on the fact that no rat can enter the house.

Keep a special distance from the mice as well as the squirrel. The hanta virus does not pass from one person to another, but if someone touches their eyes, nose and mouth after touching the feces, urine, etc. of the mice then the chances of getting infected with their hantaviruses increases.

In such a situation, people need to take special care that they choose not to touch their feces and urine and even if they do, do not touch hands without washing their hands.

  • If you touch the mice, then clean the hands with soap.
With these methods, you can avoid Hanta virus. If we talk about medicine, then just like corona, its treatment is the only way to avoid it. But mice do not die at this rate, it is spread only by infected mice.
