Around 27 people have fallen ill with the bug in Anhui Province, with seven deaths and a further 37 in Jiangsu Province, reports the country’s state-run Global Times.

The actual virus, known as SFTS or Huaiyangshan banyangvirus, is not new - Chinese scientists isolated the pathogen in 2011.

But the disease - part of the Bunyavirus category - could pass between humans too, scientists warned.

The bug can travel from human to human through infected blood and mucus, said Sheng Jifang, a doctor from the first affiliated hospital under Zhejiang University.

WHAT IS SFTS VIRUS?

SFTS or Huaiyangshan banyangvirus is an emerging infectious tick-borne disease that is part of the Bunyavirus category.

It was first discovered in Easter China, but has also been found in Japan, South Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan.

The symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, multiple organ failure, thrombocytopenia (low platelet count), leukopenia (low white blood cell count) and elevated liver enzyme levels.

The disease has a mortality rate of between 12 and 30 per cent.

In the now-deleted tweets, Briana wrote: "Lol f**k MTV. They love to choose and pick what matters and what doesn’t matter. I don’t get paid enough to be treated like s**t compared to these other self-centered b**ches! I’m OK with not filming."

The reality star, 26, went on to reveal she was the “easiest person” to film with.

She added: "I give MTV my all and I’m very transparent with a lot of things. I hate when they dangle s**t in my face or give me ultimatums.

"Y‘all can suck my d**k and find another mom to boss around. I got my house and that’s all I needed! Bye now!"

Briana was later spotted liking a string of supportive tweets from fans.

One said: "You realize she has a full time job and a side hustle besides mtv right?"

While another urged her to rethink her actions, saying: "Take a day off. Then come back to deal. Don’t make decisions on emotion."

It certainly isn't the first time Briana has hit out at the MTV show.

Last week, Briana called her co-stars "b****es" for "picking what they want to share" after she opened up about her chlamydia scare on the show.

She took to Twitter to agree with a fan who claimed that she "keeps s**t real."

The mom of two retweeted the post and added: "These old b****es are now picking and choosing what they wanna show.

"I'm gonna share it all and hopefully keep this show going. That's why they added me on in the first place right."

Meanwhile, her baby daddy Devoin Austin previously slammed MTV for airing the STD story but not his "well-doings."

He said: "Lol MTV rather share with America that Briana got burned by captain underpants.. but won’t share none of my well doings."

The former couple welcomed daughter Nova in 2011 and appeared together on Teen Mom 2.

Briana is also a mom to youngest daughter Stella, who she shares with ex Luis Hernandez.

Teen Mom fans found out in a trailer for the new season that Briana contracted an STD from Luis after the pair had unprotected sex.
