COVID is NOT alone.
Researchers for the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention have found another virus spreading among humans – reports the Guardian of London.
They report the human to human transmission of a rare virus in Bolivia, which is believed to be carried once again by rats. It belongs to a family of viruses that can cause haemorrhagic fevers, such as Ebola.
It is a reminder that Covid is not unique nor a one off.
Even while the world still battles the current pandemic, scientists around the world have repeatedly warned that our modern largely urban and inter connected world is wide open to another. We know only too well that rats have throughout history been the source of numerous plagues.
We know history has a nasty habit of repeating itself.
