The Health and Environment Department of the Municipality of Coronel Dorrego, in the face of the emergence of hantavirus cases in the province of Buenos Aires, reported that although no colloidal mice had been detected at In our area, he reminded us that this is a serious acute viral disease, caused by the Hanta virus.

Wild mice (mainly colilargos) transmit it to people, eliminating the virus in saliva, feces and urine.
The transmission is inhaled and occurs when it is breathed in open or closed sites (sheds, orchards, pastures) where the feces or urine of infected rodents released the contaminating virus in the environment.

Also by direct contact, when touching live rodents or infected deaths, or the feces or urine of these rodents, as well as by bites of infected rodents.
Symptoms appear like a flu, fever, muscle aches, chills, headaches (headaches), nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. After a few days, it may have a breathing difficulty that may aggravate – producing what is known as "cardiopulmonary syndrome for hantavirus."

To prevent coexistence with rodents and contact with their secretions, the rodents enter or nest in the homes, cover holes in doors, walls and pipes, make cleaning (floors, walls, doors, tables, drawers and pantry cabinets) with a part of bleach each new water (leave 30 minutes and then rinse).

You must also moisten the floor before sweeping it by not lifting dust, cutting grass and weed, ventilate at least 30 minutes before entering places that have been closed (houses, covered), cover – Put your mouth and nose with a dash before you enter.
