New Delhi: A new threat has arisen in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic in the world. The first case of the deadly Marburg virus has been reported in the West African country of Guinea. The World Health Organization has confirmed this. This virus is considered to be more dangerous than Ebola and Corona. It can also spread from animals to humans. In such a situation, there is an atmosphere of panic among the people of Guinea.

Havoc of Marburg virus after corona:

WHO said that this virus is spread by bats. Its mortality rate is up to 88 percent. On August 2, a patient died in southern Guaidu province. This virus has been found in his samples. Ebola was not found in this person in the post-mortem report, but Marburg virus was found.

"To stop the Marburg virus from spreading far and wide, we need to stop it in its tracks," said Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO's regional director for Africa.

WHO issues warning:

Marburg virus has been detected in Guinea at a time when WHO has declared the end of Ebola virus here two months ago. Last year, Ebola started here, in which 12 people lost their lives. At the same time, regarding the danger of this virus, WHO said that its danger is more at the regional level and less at the global level.

"We are working with health officials to build on Guinea's previous experience and expertise in managing Ebola to contain the virus," Moeti said. The Guinean government has also confirmed the Marburg case in a statement.

According to the WHO, once a person comes in contact with it, the fluids coming out of the body after coming in contact with contaminated surfaces and materials infect the person so much that if the right treatment is not received, he can die. .
