Hanta's here!

Just in time for our problem set this week, New Mexico's health department announced the third case of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. With the colder winter weather, the officials warn that mice will be entering homes, increasing the number of human-rodent interactions and, consequently, chances of hanta infection. The Department of Health recommends that the public take precautionary measures to protect their homes from murine visitors and familiarize themselves with the symptoms of Hantavirus. Who says that taking humans and viruses doesn't teach everyday life skills?
