The fourth death in Deschutes County from Hantavirus was recently confirmed by the Deschutes County Health Department. Tom Kuhn, Heath Department spokesman says they could not identify or give out any details surrounding the death, but he says they want to get a warning out to residents to protect themselves from the disease. He says the disease comes from rodents, especially the deer mouse: “The symptoms are similar to like a cold or flu. Things like fever and muscle aches, shortness of breath and coughing. Oftentimes people think they have the flu, but then they symptoms become so severe, they have the need to become hospitalized. Also, 36% of all Hantavirus cases result in death. There is no cure for Hantavirus.” Kuhn says if you find mouse droppings in your home, garage or shed, do not sweep or vacuum the area. You should make a mixture of bleach and water, spray the area, and let it soak in before cleaning it up. He adds that you should wear a facemask, gloves and place the droppings in a double plastic bag for disposal and throw the gloves away as well. For more information, contact the Deschutes County Health Department.
