Florida monkeys could pass killer herpes to people

Studies say Florida Monkeys are deadly which kill you 1212018

The data reveals that a growing population of rhesus macaques in Silver Springs state park could be carrying herpes B in their saliva, as opposed to simply carrying the virus, which is common in the species.

Since McHV-1 was identified in 1932, researchers have only documented 50 cases of human infections, all from captive macaques. However, the researchers say the issue has not been thoroughly studied.

State wildlife officials say they are taking the problem seriously.

"Without management action, the presence and continued expansion of non-native Rhesus macaques in Florida can result in serious human health and safety risks including human injury and transmission of disease". But members of the group "supports the removal of these monkeys from the environment to help reduce the threat they pose", they told the Associated Press. "This can be done in a variety of ways", another spokesperson for the commission said.

Florida's feral rhesus macaque monkeys are native to southern and eastern Asia, and are particularly adorable and effective invaders. A highly-publicized video past year showed a family being chased by several monkeys at Silver Springs State Park. They like to roam outside parks and have even been spotted in cities.

Herpes B in humans in rare: only 50 cases have been registered worldwide and transmissions of the virus have never knowingly happened in the wild. However, 21 one of the infected people died from the disease.

The findings suggest a public health concern, said David Civitello, an Emory University biology professor who was not involved in the study. They found that roughly 25 percent of the monkeys contained antibodies to the virus, which was probably an underestimate, Wisely says.

Wiley said the researchers are interested in seeing the virulency of the pathogens. "It will be important to figure out whether underreporting, low quantities, or low transmissibility would explain why infections in tourists have not been reported".

Blood tests showed the monkey carried herpes B. However, a woman who had been bitten by the monkey tested negative for the virus. A study released Wednesday (10 January) claims that their body fluids, including saliva and faeces, contain a deadly virus that is risky to man, reports the AP.
