The haematocarcinoma outbreak is spreading across China.
The World Health Organization says the disease has been confirmed in at least 13 countries, and is spreading in India.
Authorities have not reported a death from the disease, and the country’s health ministry says the countrys chief medical officer is in Beijing to oversee the spread of the disease.
China’s top public health official said on Monday that the country has “not had a single case of haemorrhagic fever” in its population.
According to the WHO, the virus has been spreading through China since March of this year.
Hematoconidosis, a rare autoimmune disease that causes swelling and redness in the joints, can be caused by many strains of the bacterium Haemophilus influenzae type b.
An estimated 200,000 people in China have haemoconidoses, and about 60,000 of those people die.
Many people in the country are exposed to the bacteria by their daily activities.
Doctors say that in the United States, about half of the haemagglutination inhibition antibodies are produced by the bacteria.
Because haemacodoses are less contagious than haemococarcins, and because it is less severe, they are treated less aggressively by health authorities.
