    Argentina isolates 85 people to quell hantavirus outbreak

    Argentina isolates 85 people to quell hantavirus outbreak

    A judge set up a quarantine to attempt to halt the spread of a hantavirus outbreak. Serious stuff- it is very likely the America's indigenous population was decimated by a hantavirus around the time Europeans started to explore the region.

    An Argentine judge has ordered 85 residents of a remote Patagonian town to stay in their homes for at least 30 days to help halt an outbreak of hantavirus in which nine people have died.

    Thursday’s order by Judge Martin Zacchino affects people in Epuyen who have been in contact with people who tested positive for the virus. Some people in the town of 3,000 had resisted calls for voluntary isolation.


    Town officials also have suspended gatherings in municipal facilities, including funerals.
    At least 26 people in the region have fallen ill from hantavirus since early December.


    People can become infected through contact with hantavirus-infected rodents or their urine and droppings, or by close contact with an infected person. Argentina has reported 111 deaths from the virus since 2013.

    Did they also do some rodent control?
