A study warns of the new Heniba virus: it may be transmitted from animals to humans

Shuang Jin Hsiang, deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Taiwan, confirmed that Taiwanese laboratories will need to develop standardized testing procedures to identify the LayV virus, saying that the genome sequencing of the virus is expected to be completed within about a week, according to Ma It was published by TASS.


Zhuang made his comments three days after the New England Journal published a study on the newly discovered virus, which was discovered in China's Shandong and Hainan provinces.


All affected patients suffered from a high temperature, while at least half of them suffered from fatigue, cough, loss of appetite and decreased white blood cells, and more than a third of patients suffered from liver failure, and 8% suffered from kidney failure.


The study said that LayV is part of the Paramyxoviridae family of tape-negative RNA viruses, which can cause a "fatal disease", and its emergence comes at a time when public health officials around the world are still dealing with the "Covid-19" pandemic, which has claimed two lives. More than 6.4 million people.


According to the researchers, it is not yet known whether the pathogen can be transmitted from one person to another, and tests conducted on animals in the affected areas showed that 5% of dogs and 2% of goats were infected, and flies may be the main carriers of LayV, with 27% tested positive.

Zhuang said that there was no close contact between the 35 infected people or had a common history of exposure, and contact tracing indicated that none of the family members or other exposed individuals were infected with the virus.


The Taiwan CDC will work with agricultural regulators to study whether similar pathogens are present in the indigenous species on the autonomous island, Chuang said, adding that the outbreak in China has not caused any deaths so far.


Chinese researchers discovered a new virus for "Henipa", called Mojiang paramyxovirus (MojV), in 2013. Rats living in an abandoned copper mine in Yunnan Province were found to be infected with the virus, and three men who were working in the mine contracted severe pneumonia, and died before Long after scientists arrived at the scene, no direct link to MojV has been confirmed.

“I was diagnosed with HSV-2 Four years ago. I hardly had any symptoms until now. I was not in a sexual relationship but this week I had s ex after my menstrual cycle. I had my first outbreak, it was horrible. I felt so depressed. I had all kinds of blisters in private places. Very very painful, it was hard to walk, sit, sleep, or go to the bathroom. I searched the web for treatment. First I tried tea tree oil, that was too harsh down there. Then I took 6,000 mg of Lysine, that did not help at all. Took 3,000 mg vitamin C, nothing. I felt that white vinegar helped a bit and cornstarch was soothing. I took 2 Epsom salt baths a day and that was soothing also. The only thing that helped was the natural herbal medicine I later ordered from Dr. Azu after some research. And the symptoms went away right away.” I'm so happy to have come in contact with doctor Azu. Thanks so much.
