July 24, 1998 - The Eureka Reporter - Page Three Jusfii mass mils Masstatrim A Juab County man has been diagnosed as having been infected with the often deadly Hantavirus. The infection which took place in June was recently confirmed by blood tests at the Utah Department of Health public health lavoratory and the Cotters for Disease Control ami prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. The man was most likely infected with the virus after being exposed to rodent nests while working in an agricultural setting. He has since recovered and is now doing fine. "Hantavirus continues to be very dangerous to humans with a 40-6- 0 death rate in known cases," Dr. Michael Peterson of Nephi said who treated the patient. Dr. Peterson, who also serves on the Central Utah r i $ Board of Health added, "People need to continue to use caution in areas where rodents may be present." Latest CDC information was found that Hantavirus is present primarily in the droppings, saliva and urine of rodents, usually deer mice. Humans who breath in the virus as a mist or dust may become infected and contract Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). The virus may also be transmitted to humans by touching the mouth or nose after handling contaminated materials. A rodents bite may also spread the virus. According to Central Utah Public Health Officer Robert Resendes, "With just over half of all infected persons dying and most cases occurring in the western states and with no vac- - TW or cure yet available, we cine cant be too careful about HPS. " Avoiding areas known to be infested with rodents if possible is a good start. When cleaning areas known to be infested with a small number of rodents persons should ware latex or rubber gloves and wet down affected areas with general household disinfectant solutions such as Lysol or bleach and water or ammonia. Cleaning of areas with large numbers of rodents should include the wearing of latex or robber gloves, goggles, a respirator fitted with HEBA filters as well as wetting the area with disinfectants to keep down the sons-in-la- dust. Rodent prevention action should also accompany this type of cleaning to ensure no reoccur- rence of an infestation.
