A veterinarian has become the first victim in China that has died after contracting a virus that has been labeled as the “monkey virus”. Before dying, the doctor had a fever, nausea, vomiting, and neurological symptoms that were almost identical to COVID-19.

The vet aged 53 that passed away was the first case involving a human in China and was detected from a disease that was labeled as “Monkey B Virus”, reported The Washington Post.

The victim was a surgery specialist in an institution located in Beijing. He was said to be a specialist in experimental research on primates, not humans.

In early March, the doctor was said to have analyzed two dead monkeys. After a month following the operations, he experienced a fever, nausea, vomiting, and neurological symptoms. Despite making it to the hospital, the doctor was pronounced dead on the 27th of May 2021.
