International Desk: Langia virus has become a new threat in China after the coronavirus. Already 35 people have been infected with this new virus in the country. According to a report by the Taipei Times, the virus has been detected in the country's Shandong and Henan provinces.

According to a Guardian report citing Taiwanese scientists, this virus may have been transmitted from animals to humans. The health ministry of the country is monitoring the outbreak of this virus.

Various information provided by scientists from China, Singapore and Australia about this new virus has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).

Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Deputy Director General Chuang Zhen-xiang said that 26 people infected with the new virus had symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, loss of appetite, muscle pain, nausea, and headache.

These patients also have problems like low white blood cells, low platelet count, liver problems and kidney failure.

However, scientists have said that no one has died from this virus yet. Professor Wang Linfa of the Duke-NUS Medical School told the Global Times that the virus cannot be called fatal or very dangerous so far. So there is nothing to panic about it now.
