Um, guys? This is new: Emerging Hemorrhagic Fever In Bolivia Capable Of Human Transmission

“A presentation at the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) has announced that a deadly virus emerging in Bolivia can pass from human to human. Chapare virus, which causes hemorrhagic fever, had previously only been seen in small clusters of patients, but a recent outbreak saw several emergency service workers infected following exposure to a patient with the disease. At least three people were infected near Bolivia’s capital city, La Paz, in 2019, two of whom died from the disease.”
