Human Viral Zoonosis

General

The Human Viral Zoonosis (commonly known as HVZ) is a hemorrhagic virus that was originally discovered in some species of monkeys. After its discovery the virus was taken to be studied in labs at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention headquarters however, while being researched there was a containment breech and several researchers were unknowingly contaminated with the virus, allowing it to begin spreading to others in the local area. At the time humans only carried the virus and the containment breech was only realized when the virus mutated to take control of human hosts.

Virus Heredity

Before the outbreak when the virus was being studied in Atlanta. Research recovered from this time shows that CDC Researchers believe HVZ is a cross of the Marburg virus and the Corona virus.

    Scientific achievement

    Scientists find that Human Viral Zoonosis is a highly infectious virus that is able to take control of it's hosts body in order to help it find new hosts. While the virus appears only be able to take control of the rhesus monkey scientist believe that humans could act as carriers of the virus.
