Among the various forms of judgment that God brings upon the unrighteous and rebellious is pestilence. Not every epidemic is the direct judgment of God, but the Bible indicates that some instances of pestilence in history have been a punishment for sin. God sent pestilence to punish the Israelite’s for their ongoing idolatry and disobedience (Deuteronomy 32:24Jeremiah 42:22), and during the tribulation He will send pestilence to punish the unrepentant: “The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image” (Revelation 16:2; cf. Revelation 18:8Matthew 24:7). We never have to experience God’s pestilential judgment if we will accept His protection through faith in Jesus Christ (John 1:122 Corinthians 5:21).

Cases of human hantavirus infection occur sporadically, usually in rural areas where forests, fields, and farms offer suitable habitat for the virus’s rodent hosts. Areas around the home or work where rodents may live (for example, houses, barns, outbuildings, and sheds) are potential sites where people may be exposed to the virus. In the US and Canada, the Sin Nombre hantavirus is responsible for the majority of cases of hantavirus infection. The host of the Sin Nombre virus is the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), present throughout the western and central US and Canada.

Several other hantaviruses are capable of causing hantavirus infection in the US. The New York hantavirus, carried by the white-footed mouse, is associated with HPS cases in the northeastern US. The Black Creek hantavirus, carried by the cotton rat, is found in the southeastern US. Cases of HPS have been confirmed elsewhere in the Americas, including Canada, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Panama, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

Michigan health officials have announced the state’s first confirmed case of a human infection by the rodent-borne hantavirus, which causes a potentially deadly pulmonary illness with symptoms similar to COVID-19.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) confirmed in a release that an adult female in Washtenaw County was recently hospitalized with hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), which is caused by the Sin Nombre hantavirus.

Officials believe the woman, who was not identified in the release, became exposed to the virus when cleaning a residence that appeared to be infested by rodents.

HPS, which is rare but deadly, has a fatality rate of around 40 percent. No cases of human-to-human transmission of hantavirus have been reported, with humans at risk of infection when dried materials contaminated by rodent excreta become disturbed and then either get inhaled, enter breaks in the skin, or are ingested through tainted food and water.

While bites from infected rodents can also transmit the virus, the highest risk of human infection occurs when entering or cleaning rodent-infested structures.

“We can prevent and reduce the risk of hantavirus infection by taking precautions and being alert to the possibility of it,” Dr. Juan Luis Marquez, a medical director with the Washtenaw County Health Department, said in a statement. “Use rubber, latex, vinyl or nitrile gloves when cleaning areas with rodent infestations, ventilate areas for at least 30 minutes before working, and make sure to wet areas thoroughly with a disinfectant or chlorine solution before cleaning.”

The most common symptoms of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) overlap with those in COVID-19 patients—fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, and muscle pains. There is also some similarity between the two illnesses in additional symptoms—namely headache as well as vomiting and diarrhea—according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Hantavirus was first confirmed as the cause of HPS in patients in the southwest United States in 1993. According to the CDC, as of January 2017, there were 728 cases of hantavirus-related infections, including HPS and non-pulmonary hantavirus infection.

“HPS is caused by some strains of hantavirus and is a rare but severe and sometimes fatal respiratory disease that can occur one to five weeks after a person has exposure to fresh urine, droppings, or saliva from infected rodents,” Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health at MDHHS, said in a statement.

“Anyone who comes into contact with rodents that carry hantavirus is at risk for HPS and health care providers with a suspect case of hantavirus should contact their local health department to report the case and discuss options for confirmatory testing,” Khaldun added.

Most hantavirus infections tend to occur in the spring and summer. The most important hantavirus in the United States that causes HPS is the Sin Nombre virus, which is spread by the deer mouse and white footed mouse, according to the Michigan health department.

In police-state fashion, “Demonic Big Tech” took the list of accused (including this site), declared all those named within “guilty,” and then promptly shadow-banned, de-platformed or de-monetized each of us. They did this without coming clean about how they engineered the crushing of dissent. Now more than ever, big Tech has exposed their hand and engaged in devious, underhanded tactics to make the sinister look saintly. One of Satan’s greatest weapons happens to be deceit.
This is what Satan Soldiers do all day long! They influence opinion by spewing lies. They shut down debate, factual information, and opinions that don’t line up with their godless worldview. They claim to be open to civil discourse, and yet they silence speech. This is Un-American and unconstitutional! They say they want unity, but they demand submission. And they will punish those who disagree.

“My job is protecting children. It has taken me from big cities to rural outposts, from ghettos to penthouses, and from courtrooms into demonic battlefields. But whatever the venue, the truth remains constant: Some humans intentionally hurt children. They commit unspeakable acts—for their pleasure, their profit, or both.” ~ StevieRay Hansen, CEO Of The 127 Faith Foundation
