Mystery Fatal Hemorrhagic Disease in Shandong China
Mystery Fatal Hemorrhagic Disease in Shandong China
July 28, 2008

"China reported that approximately 20 days ago, a man suddenly died from an unidentified disease in Wanjiakou Village, Xiaoguan Town, Wendeng City, Shandong Province. His entire body turned dark purple, and he bled from his mouth, nostrils, ears, and eyes just as he died.

Shortly after the man died, 2 other men who been in contact with him, died showing the same symptoms. Villagers who had left the village to work said "3 people died 10 days ago. 6 or 7 more are being treated in the Wendeng Central Hospital. People have been to the area to investigate, but they are unable to classify the disease."

I received the following email from Chuck Dolejs of the International
Association of Emergency Managers regarding a Sound of Hope web page
(< [link to en.epochtimes.com]
updated [26 Jul 2008]. Has this outbreak been verified by authorities?

"China reported that approximately 20 days ago, a man suddenly died
from an unidentified disease in Wanjiakou Village, Xiaoguan Town,
Wendeng City, Shandong Province. His entire body turned dark purple,
and he bled from his mouth, nostrils, ears, and eyes just as he died.
Shortly after the man died, 2 other men who been in contact with him,
died showing the same symptoms. Villagers who had left the village to
work said "3 people died 10 days ago. 6 or 7 more are being treated in
the Wendeng Central Hospital. People have been to the area to
investigate, but they are unable to classify the disease." Most people
outside of the village do not know about the illness. Their families
do not want people who have left the village to return.

"Reporters from Sound of Hope Radio Network (SOH) interviewed local
residents and staff from a health clinic. What follows are
transcripts from the recorded interviews. A male villager verified
that the disease broke out in the northern section of Wanjiakou
Village, and spread rather quickly. The SOH reporter then phoned the
Department of Health and Prevention of Contagious Diseases in Wendeng
City and Yantai City, Shandong Province using numbers published on
the official web sites. However, he was unable to talk with anyone,
as the line was either filled with static or the call was routed to a
wrong number announcement." [The actual details of the interviews are

[ProMED-mail would like to thank Dr. Stephen Cunnion for sending on
this information. As a reminder, it was he who sent ProMED-mail the
1st report on an outbreak of "atypical pneumonia" in Guangdong, China,
on 10 Feb 2003 that we posted and was the 1st public notification of
the early outbreaks of what was later named Severe Acute Respiratory
Sydrome (SARS) (see ProMED-mail posting Pneumonia - China
(Guangdong): RFI 20030210.0357 for this report).

Using the database of the Global Infectious Disease and Epidemiology
Network (GIDEON < [link to gideononline.com>)] to see possible etiologies
for a hemorrhagic fever syndrome in China, the most likely diagnosis
would be Old World hantavirus infection (57 percent probability),
followed by _Streptococcus suis_ infection (40 percent), leptospirosis
(1.8 percent) and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF -- less than
one percent probability).

According to the GIDEON database, hantaviruses are endemic in 28 of
the 32 provinces, with most cases occurring in the eastern and
northeastern provinces (where Shandong is located). Hantaan virus is
endemic to Hubei, Heilongjiang, Jiangxi, Jilin and Shanxi. (Fang LQ,
Li CY, Yang H, Wu XM, Yang H, Chen HX, Li XW, Cao WC [Using geographic
information system to study the association between epidemic areas and
main animal hosts of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome in China.]
Zhonghua Liu Xing Bing Xue Za Zhi 2004 Nov ;25(11):929-33.

- 52.2 percent of infections in Hubei are caused by Hantaan virus,
and 31.5 percent by Seoul virus.
- Most infections in Shandong provin
ce are caused by Seoul virus. (Wang ZQ, Wang YL, Fu JH, Zhao L, Sun
CY, Zhang XQ, Zhang YX, Fan SZ, Wang ND [Molecular analysis of
hantavirus isolated from Shandong province]. Zhonghua Shi Yan He Lin
Chuang Bing Du Xue Za Zhi 2003 Jun ;17(2):121-3.)
- Seoul virus was identified in humans and rodents (_Rattus
norvegicus_ and _Mus musculus_) in Beijing during 2003 to 2005. (Zuo
SQ, Zhang PH, Jiang JF, Zhan L, Wu XM, Zhao WJ, Wang RM, Tang F, Dun
Z, Cao WC. Seoul virus in patients and rodents from Beijing, China. Am
J Trop Med Hyg 2008 May ;78(5):833-7.

A new Puumala virus subtype, most closely related to strains from
Japan and South Korea, has been isolated from bank voles in Northeast
China. (2007 publication) (Tang LH, Zhang QF, Xiu MH, Gu GW, Bo S,
Yang XD, Liang MF, Li DX [Identification of a new Puumala hantavirus
subtype in rodents from China] Bing Du Xue Bao 2007 Jul ;23(4):320-5.
The abstract does not give any information about human infection by it.

ProMED-mail has reported on hantavirus outbreaks in China earlier this
year in Inner Mongolia (see Hantavirus infection - Taiwan ex China
(Inner Mongolia) 20080119.0249), and in prior years (see references
below)

According to the GIDEON database, CCHF has been reported from the
southwestern desert region in Xinjiang province and is referred to as
Xinjiang fever. Hence it would be a significant geographic change
were this outbreak to be due to CCHF. There is also mention that 10
to 20 percent of sheep, goats and cattle in Sichuan are seropositive
-- so movement of livestock from the southwest to other provinces may
very well move the disease geographically.

One should not forget the earlier major outbreaks of _Streptococcus
suis_ in China in 2005. A recurrence of the problem is possible.

It is noteworthy that according to the question and answer part of
the referred media report, there is mention that the cases to date
have been in predominantly in men, suggesting that exposure may well
be occupational, which places both hantavirus infection and
_Streptococcus suis_ as leading possibilities for the etiologic agent
for this outbreak. The outbreak is occurring in a rural zone where
there is a high likelihood of exposure of males to rodents and to the
porcine population during usual occupational activities in an
agricultural zone.

ProMED-mail would greatly appreciate more information from
knowledgeable sources in the region on this as yet unsubstantiated
report of a cluster of hemorrhagic-like illnesses with fatalities in
Shandong Province.

For a map of China with geographic divisions see
< [link to www.lib.utexas.edu]
Of note, Shanjong province is contiguously north of Jiangsu province,
where there was an outbreak of 'epidemic hemorrhagic fever' in 2007,
which while the etiologic agent was not mentioned, was felt to most
likely be due to an Old World hantavirus infection (see prior
ProMED-mail postings Epidemic hemorrhagic fever - China
(Jiangsu) 20070113.0179 and Epidemic hemorrhagic fever - China
(Jiangsu) (02) 20070116.0206).

[Seoul virus occurs worldwide and is unlikely to be associated with a
localized outbreak in China. Puumala virus is prevalent throughout
northern Europe and middle Asia and is usually responsible for only
mild forms of hemorragic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS). - Mod.CP]

I say burn all of your bridges while you still have control of the flame.
We are like flies crawling across the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel: We cannot see what angels and gods lie underneath the threshold of our perceptions. We do not live in reality; we live in our paradigms, our habituated perceptions, our illusions; the illusions we share through culture we call reality, but the true historical reality of our condition is invisible to us.”

Re: Mystery Fatal Hemorrhagic Disease in Shandong China
FWIW, two nights ago (before I saw this post), I had a dream. I was in a businessplace with computers. The data techs told another guy to leave because he looked sick. He went out of frame and then, next frame, he's fallen over and slid across the floor leaving a trail of blood from his mouth. I (in the dream) said "it's hemmoragic fever." I guess I obviously knew the term or I couldn't have dreamt it,but it was odd.

Re: Mystery Fatal Hemorrhagic Disease in Shandong China
At the winter Olympics I said to my husband as I saw scores of people now that's a way to spread a lethal virus.

I still think it is. What better way to infect the entire world all in one setting? Given the incubation time would be just enough for everyone to get sick, be asymptomatic and then get on a plane and take it home to spread.

It takes just one person with an airborne virulent disease to walk through a crowd and infect everyone.

 Quoting: The Analog Guy


Ebola outbreaks happen more often than most people think. example of ebola case ,this one is dated 4 june 2008

The PROMED Site is a reporting site used by ppl from the science, medico communities to the CDC and WHO and is really good for keeping track of outbreaks

As i said on a previous post don't look around on this site too much as it will scare you

20080603.1779, Maia Funk-Baumann, MD of the WHO Collaborating Centre
for Travellers' Health at the University of Zurich has pointed out
that this suspected Ebola case is from Boende, in the northwestern
province of Equateur, not Kasai Occidental province as stated in the
moderator's comment. Accordingly, this post has been revised to take
account of the error. Dr Funk-Baumann's help is appreciated. - Mod.CP]

A case of hemorrhagic fever has been reported in the Boende health
zone of Tshuapa District. The chief medical officer in the area, Dr.
Cesar Moyeli, believes that symptoms exhibited by a woman admitted to
a general hospital in the zone are consistent with those of Ebola
hemorrhagic fever.

Dr. Moyeli stated that: "After 2 days, the patient began to
experience hemorrhage: 1st from the genitalia, then from her eyes,
gums and even her ears. In addition, red patches appeared on her
skin. Taken together, these features suggested a diagnosis of
hemorrhagic fever. In order to avoid disseminating the infection, we
informed the family that, due to the danger of the illness, the body
could not be released to the family for normal burial. Instead, the
body was disinfected and taken directly to the cemetery for burial.
All materials used in the care of the patient have been burnt, and
the treatment room remains closed."

The patient died last Thursday [29 May 2008]. Clinical samples have
been taken and dispatched to Kinshasa [the capital of Congo DR] for
virus identification. Meanwhile, the family of the deceased and all
her known contacts will be kept under observation for a period of 3
weeks.
