A man in China died on Monday after testing positive for Hantavirus, leading many to criticise the country for being responsible for a new outbreak amid a global pandemic.

As China slowly returns to normalcy and appears to be on the brink of bringing the coronavirus outbreak under control after months, the country has been hit with another dangerous virus that has already claimed a man’s life.

China’s Global Times reported earlier today that one of its citizens, a man from the country’s Yunnan province, died shortly after testing positive for Hantavirus, which is not air-borne. The deceased was travelling to Shandong Province on a chartered bus when he passed away from the disease. All the 32 passengers in the bus were also tested, the publication added, without details.
