    A passenger who died on a bus in China has tested positive for a completely different virus than COVID-19 — one more fatal that often produces very similar symptoms, according to state-run media.

    The unidentified victim from Yunnan province died while on a chartered bus heading to his workplace in Shandong province, the state-run Global Times announced in a tweet Monday.

    “He was tested positive for #hantavirus. Other 32 people on bus were tested,” the outlet stated, offering no further details.

    Woah, it's comes from rodent waste though & not easily passed by human to human contact so it won't spread. Would make the current times far worse if it did.
