Fears for Welsh in Patagonia as Hantavirus kills nine

From the small outbreak in Epuyen, a city in Western Patagonia, the hantavirus is claimed to be more of a threat than the coronavirus. It is claimed that this virus can cause a serious lung condition where patients may have issues with blood vessels or heart failure. According to WHO (World Health Organization), there is no specific treatment for this virus. It’s told to be spread by rodents. However, according to numerous other sources, the hantavirus is a non-contagious disease that already has a vaccine. The controversy between these two arguments may never have an answer. Some sites say that this virus is more of a threat than the corona-virus.
