Brucellosis has recently been diagnosed in China. A few thousand infected. Although it is a bacterial infection, it has many similarities with corona. According to the researchers, brucellosis has also entered India secretly. More affected than China. Scientists are calling for large-scale tests to prevent the epidemic.
Needless to say. This brucellosis bacterium has also just been caught in China. New bacterial infections have spread to northwestern China. Thousands of Chinese test reports have already come positive.
According to the National Health Commission (NHC) in Lanzhou, the capital of China’s Gansu Province, 3,245 people have been infected with brucellosis so far. Initially, 1,401 positive reports were received. Fortunately, however, no one in China has yet died from this bacterial infection. If it was confined to China, it would be a relief to be able to breathe a sigh of relief. According to sources, this new bacterial infection has already been detected in India. It affects humans as well as animals.
Brucellosis is caused by a group of bacteria belonging to the genus Brucella. From humans to animals – no one is immune to these bacteria. These deadly bacteria can spread directly to the human body from the fluids of infected animals. Unpasteurized dairy products can also spread the infection from polluted air.
According to health experts, the possibility of human-to-human transmission is extremely rare. However, everything from contaminated food to breathing in areas where bacteria are present can spread the infection. Breastfeeding a baby can even spread the bacteria through sexual intercourse. Even if it is cut and spread, this new bacterial infection can occur from there.
There is a preliminary idea that the bacteria spread to China from the Zhangmu Lanzhou Biological Pharmaceutical Factory between late June and August last year. Humans as well as sheep, cows, goats, pigs, dogs can be infected.
Symptoms can take days to months after infection. Fever, joint pain, weakness, loss of appetite, headache, sweating are common symptoms of this bacterial infection. It is similar to the symptoms of Kovid-19 and flu. Symptoms such as spondylitis, arthritis, and swelling of the testicles may also occur.
Although there is no cure for COVID 19, there are several antibiotics used to treat brucellosis. However, there is no vaccine-like COVID.
