BEIJING:- The Corona virus is a new threat to China. Thousands of people have been infected with the bacterial disease brucellosis in northwestern China. The bacterium accidentally spread from a biopharmaceutical company factory last year. As a results, many people have fallen ill .
According to the Health Commission in Lanzhou, the capital of China’s Gansu Province, 3,245 people have been infected so far. The bacterium Brucella is spread from the body of an animal. Brucellosis causes genital problems in men. Even many men are becoming infertile.
Officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the disease caused by the bacterium Brucella is also known as ‘Malta fever’ or ‘Mediterranean fever’. The disease results in headaches, muscle aches, fever and fatigue. Some of the symptoms of this disease like arthritis or swelling of certain organs can last for a lifetime.
However, the hope is that the disease is very unlikely to spread directly from one person to another. The disease can be contracted only if bacteria enter the body by eating poisonous food or by inhaling it.
