The viral outbreak that began in Thailand and quickly spread across the world was traced to the roseola virus, an infectious agent found in rhinoceros horns.
Since then, hundreds of thousands of cases of the disease have been reported, the World Health Organization reported on Tuesday.
The virus was first detected in China in 2011 and spread rapidly to India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Malaysia, among other countries.
As of last week, the number of confirmed cases had climbed to 6,935, including 1,074 deaths, the WHO said.
Roseola is one of the most common respiratory illnesses and has killed about 11,000 people worldwide since its discovery in 2007.
The coronavirus is one reason for the uptick in infections.
But many experts say there are many more reasons why children are getting the virus.
One of them is the increasing use of rhino horns.
In India, the trade in the horn is banned and the horn can fetch up to $100 per kilogram.
A recent report by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) found that the global trade in rhino horn rose from $12.5 billion in 2005 to $70 billion in 2016.
The rhino industry accounts for $6.5 trillion annually in global trade.
Many countries have passed laws banning the trade.
In Indonesia, for example, there are strict requirements for people to wear masks when buying or selling rhino meat.
But rhino products are still readily available, and some traders say it’s more profitable to get their horns than the money they make.
Roseolas disease is spread by the rhino’s saliva and can be spread through direct contact with the skin of the animal.
That means rhinos can get infected by touching the horn, a situation that can lead to the spread of the virus if the horn touches someone’s nose or mouth.
Roselashes can also be spread via close contact with infected individuals or by people with a weakened immune system.
The disease is most contagious if the infection is caused by the coronaviruses coronaviral and noncovid viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.
This means that there is no known vaccine or cure for the disease.
The NIAID report said the rate of new cases of rhinorrhoea has increased dramatically in recent years.
The number of reported cases increased by almost 3,000 percent between March 2015 and March 2017.
The report says the new cases have come mostly from young people, many of whom were not previously infected.
It says that the new infections are linked to a number of factors, including people who are not vaccinated for coronavire and who are living with someone with a weaker immune system who is likely to carry the virus and a culture of rhinos that is more infectious than the general population.
Roseoilas disease can also cause severe breathing problems, including coughing and shortness of breath.
It can also lead to other respiratory problems, such as pneumonia, if untreated.
The infection has also been linked to other serious respiratory problems.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended that all children under 5 be vaccinated against rhinobacterium coronavirostrinitis.
But some countries have not been following the recommendation and continue to vaccinate children aged between 12 and 17.
According to the WHO, more than 1.6 million people in Africa have contracted the disease, including more than half of the children living in India, Pakistan, Nigeria and Thailand.
In the past year, at least 3,700 cases of coronavius have been confirmed in India.
A study by the World Bank and the NIAIDS found that rhinococcal disease, or rhinopneumonia, has been the leading cause of death in children and young people in South Asia, particularly in the south-east of the country.
The study also found that about 80 percent of the deaths were related to rhinotracheitis.
Rhinoprophylaxis, which includes the use of antibiotics, can prevent the spread and spread of rhonococcal diseases, including rhinopesis, and prevent pneumonia.
