"Hanta virus is aka Ortho Hanta viruses. This is a group of viruses. They are single stranded there in an envelope. And they're an RN a virus? You just learned so much, okay? And what is what does the Ortho part of all that? I don't know why they changed the name from Hanta viruses to Ortho hunting irises at some point recently. The Filon Janie of this is confusing to me sometimes they call it. The order Buna, vir Alice. Sometimes they call that the family Buna Verde. Who knows if you see the word Buna virus that is a larger group of irises? That includes the hunt of irises. It also includes a lot of other viruses, which cause horrible diseases, including Crimean Congo. Hemorrhagic fever Rift Valley fever several different encephalitis, viruses, and so many more. So this is a pretty. Gnarly family group. It's gnarly group. Order of. It's a nightly group of viruses that love to infect humans, which not all virus groups love to do that these ones. Do what's interesting about Honda viruses, specifically in this family or order or whatever is that? They're the only ones for the most part that aren't transmitted by ticks and mosquitoes so most of the other viruses in this Buna Verde or Buna Verelis group are transmitted by ticks or mosquitoes not hunt, viruses, right? So Honda viruses in contrast are transmitted through rodent excrement. Yummy, so fun. What I love is that so arthropods born viruses that are transmitted by ticks and mosquitoes are often called Arba viruses. You could call these rowboat viruses. Rodent born. I love it. Anyways. Very very Sifi. It's very Sifi. So Honda viruses are transmitted by rodent excrement. What does that mean, it means that these viruses live their life cycle inside of rodents and they're naturally found in rodent populations? Honestly across the globe various different haunted, viruses are found in almost every continent in different rodent species. And they circulate in these rodent populations really without causing a lot of damage. They don't harm the rodent populations. Really kind of do. Okay. Overwintering survival. Okay. So that counts, but they don't cause the kind of damage that they cause in humans in general in the road in relations, which suggests that they have sort of a history like these are the groups of animals that they are sort of evolved to infect if that makes sense. So in humans hunt viruses of which there are a number. And I'll tell you the names of a bunch of them they cause to major diseases sort of two distinct groups of illnesses, the first that you might have heard of is called hunt, virus pulmonary syndrome. You've heard of that Aaron, of course, and the other is called hemorrhagic fever with Reno syndrome. That sounds quite right. If you had to guess like, which one of that sounds the worst. I mean, hemorrhagic fever. I would automatically say oh my gosh. Terrible bright, but knowing Hanta viruses to write this leading question. So yes, it's actually hunt virus pulmonary syndrome that is the more severe of the two disorders. So what I'm gonna do is. I'm gonna go through each of these two disorders Hanta, virus, pulmonary syndrome and hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. Talk about what's different about them. And then talk about what's similar about. Them. Sounds good. Cool. Sounds great. So Hanta virus pulmonary syndrome will start with that because it's my personal favorite. And it's the one that. The one that people are probably more familiar with if you live in the United States because this is caused primarily by sin nombre virus. And this is the Hanta virus that exists in the United States in the south west, it's hosted or it's it's reservoir host is the deer mouse. I like the term hosted. It's hosted by the lovely dear mouth. And it causes a disease that has a death rate of thirty eight to fifty percent. That's emormous is enormous. It's a very very scary illness. So here's how it happens. There's four different phases of HPS, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Okay, at starts after an incubation period of between nine and twenty four days usually about one defy weeks, which is a pretty wide incubation period. And that's again, the time from when you're infected to the time when you first show symptoms and so after that incubation period, the first phase is the Phibro phase Phibro means favor. So as you can guess the starts with a fever..

So that you explained that to yourself. Yeah. Just an Abel's people to go so deep deep deep inside themselves. That's where the healing takes place, and it and some people have said it's like ten years of therapy rolled into a couple of days. It's it's it has this has its miracle component. It's very profound. But to me intention is everything. And you know, you could do I began a half dozen times and s hall. Yeah. So it's not it's never the method is always the person. And actually if a person's intention is so pure. That don't meet a method that could be walking across the street showing a piece to govern. And they'll be transformed.

Now, I haven't 'cause I was wondering how you know. Basically what what you describe is like a three day. I watched experience, you know. And what I'm wondering. Because you said that that the the first what four to six hours are the really eight. You know, kind of exciting part does. Now, the now, it's it's forty to fifty hours.

And as a result of that she access to level of frustration within herself that enabled her to kick into place where she was choose witnessing her sleep ten and a half is really an very deep state of of waking. And and I always tune that. I begin gave when she needed. Now what you wanted. So there's no prescriptions truth.

Is serious. You know? But I just like I always wanted to know what was going on. You know, I wanted to like under. Stand. What was unfolding in front of me? And I had this sense of being in the midst of like really momentous events in like some people in those kinds of situations. Want to hide in some people have this like weird genetic mutation that makes them want to run towards whatever you're a very curious person. I mean, I can say that even just from like having dinner with you is that you're just like you ask all the questions, but not like an I just made your curious person. Yeah. Yes. I mean, the other alternative was to become an FBI agent. Sure. Just in tears. I ask a lot of questions. Yeah. You're curious person. And then I also well first of all why were you the the moving? Yeah. What was the impetus behind the re family? Oh, yes. So my my dad my dad's work was like kind of national development. So he had his special his his specialization was agricultural engineering and vocational education. So we would move around for his job, and he did lots of different things around like helping farmers diversify their crops. And the Rift Valley of east Africa and stuff like that. So it was really for his job, and you know, like in that life. You're just kind of tagging along like wherever dad's next assignment is off you go. And so we moved like eighteen times in the first eighteen years of my life that seems genuinely very difficult and also it would seem like the specificity of that work in terms of breaking down fear of the other your, you know, also just in terms of maybe also breaking down pity. Yeah. You know, because that's another thing that we're taught as Americans, especially if you're white is to be like, you know, there's like the the there's like no food in China like a plate thing to thing that concerned not appreciate there's like there's like some food and trying a lot of people if they're they have to be. But, but yeah, I would imagine, you know, you're meeting people. It's dissolving some of your pity. You're meeting people's dissolving some of your fear. Yeah. And I think that you know, when you are put in the position where you're constantly the other. And yet you also have to kind of navigate the world, you just sort of find ways to find common ground, and I think that for me as a journalist that's been the sort of touchdown, right? That in any situation. Whether it's you know, whether it's a refugee camp into our four or interviewing like, a virulent, homophobic archbishop in Nigeria or you know, like in the middle of a battle in eastern Congo during the civil war. You just you're just always searching for ways to make that human connection because that's like where the real stories lie. And that's that's kind of been the story of my life right is just seeking out these moments of human connection, and and frankly moments of like, Hugh. In solidarity where we're kind of all in it together. And and I hear, you know, this is very useful more mission. It's yeah, it's very easy to get super depressed about things. Right. And I think that one of the things that really struck me, particularly my work as correspondent in overseas was like really like deeply getting to understand humans on this kind of like basic person to person level. And and I had these like very basic rules about engaging with people like if somebody offered me food and drink a food or drink. I would always accept it. And you know, like you could be in a refugee camp and somebody would be like I wanna make you a Cup of tea, and you always say, yes because that is a fundamental way to create a a relationship of intimacy and humanity and shared, you know, kind of shared purpose. And and I think that you know, like..
