In Bolivia, an unknown previously deadly virus has appeared. This is reported by the local edition of La Razon.
Bolivian Health Minister Gabriela Montaño stated that one death case has already been registered – a doctor from the province of Karanavi. Two more doctors were infected from the victim. There are also three other women under medical supervision who have been in contact with doctors.
As a result of tests, doctors have already excluded viruses such as dengue, chikungunya, or influenza. To strengthen the Bolivian medical team, an infectology specialist from Brazil arrived in the country. Also, according to Montaño, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) was asked to collaborate with two other doctors.
