New Zoonotic Virus LayV: In Dogs, Goats, and Shrews

The New England Journal of Medicine published a study titled “A Zoonotic Henipavirus in Febrile Patients in China” last week. According to the report, the LayV virus is found in dogs, goats, and shrews (small rodents like moles). The report does not confirm that the virus has been transmitted by human-to-human contacts. The report’s serological survey conducted on domestic animals showed that 2 percent goats and 5 percent dogs were positive among the tested lot. Further the test conducted on 25 wild animal species suggest that the shrew (a small insectivorous mammal resembling a mouse) has the Langya henipavirus naturally. The reports said 27 percent of the shrew tested had the virus. 

What is The Virus Langya Henipavirus, LayV)?

A recent virus found in China is a type of animal derived Henipavirus known as Langya henipavirus, LayV. This virus has infected humans in Shandong Province and Henan Province, infecting 35 people so far. The LayV strain is a part of the Paramyxoviridae family. This family has some viruses that are fatal; those include the Nipah virus, that it transfers from animals to humans. The Langya henipavirus LayV virus is completely novel, and it has not infected humans before.

New Zoonotic Virus LayV: Symptoms LayV Infected? 

Taiwan’s CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang said 26 out of 35 patients infected with LayV suffered indications such as fever, fatigue, and coughing. No casualties have been reported so far, but the health authorities are cautiously monitoring the situation. The 26 patients established indications including 100 percent experiencing fever, 54 per cent were feeling fatigue, 50 per cent or less patients had cough, loss of appetite, muscle pain, nausea, headache, and vomiting. 

Is LayV Infection Due To Human Contact?

The patients were not in close contacts nor had any human-to-human exposure. The data reveals that there is no significant spatial or temporal clustering of Langya henipavirus to support human-to-human transmission hypothesis. It will not be appropriate to say that the infection rose to human contacts. A small sample of contact tracing of nine patients with 15 close-contact family members revealed no human-to-human LayV transmission. However, it cannot be ascertained based on this sample size as it was too small to determine the status.

Is the LayV virus fatal?

The infected patients of Langya henipavirus so far have not been reported to be incurable or deadly, therefore there is no urgency to become fearful. Prof Wang Linfa, expert in the Programme in Emerging Infectious Diseases at Duke-NUS Medical School was a part of this research and says many viruses that exist in nature have unpredictable results when they infect humans. Taiwan’s CDC Deputy Director-General Chuang Jen-hsiang has advised the people to remain attentive to further updates about the virus.

Eternal Truth Uttered by Supreme Almighty Kabir

Supreme God Kabir Saheb in His description about “The Creation of Universe” utters the truth that one creative power ‘Maya’ and his companion ‘Kal’ have captured the pious souls for ages. These two create sufferings with the web of karma in which the humans face repercussions for each deed. Maya’s three differentiating attributes (Satogun, Rajogun, and Tamogun) control the behavior of all human beings except those who practice Sat-Bhakti. Only Sat-Bhakti (True Devotion) can give relief from Maya’s irreparable harm from diseases, flood, earthquake, or an accident. 

True Devotion (Sat-Bhakti) Can Eliminate Sufferings

The Almighty Kabir Saheb tells to adopt “True Devotion” (Sat-bhakti). He acts as a Satguru or appoints a Satguru through Satguru – disciple tradition. Enlightened Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is present Satguru from Kabir Saheb’s lineage. Millions of devotees get relieved by taking Initiation (Naam Diksha) and perform “True Devotion” (Sat-bhakti) maintaining dignity.
