Yosemite hantavirus-230,000 more visitors notified- 3 deaths so far
Tue Sep 4, 2012 9:37pm EDT
- U.S. health officials have sent warnings to 39 other countries that their citizens who stayed in Yosemite National Park tent cabins this summer may have been exposed to a deadly mouse-borne hantavirus, a park service epidemiologist said on Tuesday.

Of the 10,000 people thought to be at risk of contracting hantavirus pulmonary syndrome from their stays in Yosemite between June and August, some 2,500 live outside the United States, Dr. David Wong ...

Health officials in France were investigating two suspected cases of deadly mouse-borne hantavirus in people who may have been exposed at Yosemite National Park this summer.

Some 1,923 Europeans in 18 countries may be at risk of contracting hantavirus pulmonary syndrome from visits to the U.S. national park in California between June and August, according to an assessment by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control on Wednesday.

"In France, the French National Institute for Public Health Surveillance has reported an ongoing investigation into two potentially exposed cases," the European CDC said.

Just another trial virus to work the masses into fear and readiness for immunizations and such. There's been so many of these lately, makes me wonder which will become the next "big" one.

This disease is caused by breathing dried mouse droppings. It is not contageous, but many could be already be infected.

Hantavirus in Yosemite: World Health Organization issues alert

The World Health Organization is the latest agency to weigh in on the recent hantavirus outbreak in Yosemite National Park, issuing an advisory about the rare disease that has killed two and sickened four.

Issued Tuesday though the agency's "global alert and response network," the notification summarizes the Yosemite outbreak and advises travelers to "avoid exposure to rodents and their excreta."

The agency also sent several tweets about hantavirus Wednesday.

"If you stayed in the Signature Tent Cabins in Yosemite National Park, USA, since June 2012 & have #Hantavirus symptoms, see a doctor," read one message.

"Doctors, if you have patients with #Hantavirus symptoms, ask for their travel history," read another.

29,000 possibly exposed to virus

Written by Alexander MacLean, The Union Democrat September 10, 2012 08:36 am

The most recent person killed by the rare hantavirus pulmonary syndrome was part of a growing group of Yosemite National Park visitors all believed to have been infected around the same time in June while staying in a specific style of cabin in a popular lodging area, park officials confirmed Friday.
Additionally, Yosemite officials are now saying that about 29,000 visitors since the beginning of June could have been exposed to the virus.

The victim, a tourist from Kanawha County, West Virginia, stayed in a “signature tent cabin” in Curry Village sometime in mid-June like those in all but one of the eight other hantavirus cases linked to the park this summer, according to Yosemite spokeswoman Kari Cobb.

She said the West Virginia victim died in late-July, but the death wasn’t officially confirmed as hantavirus and linked to the park until Thursday morning.

“That person died but they weren’t sure why, so they went back and did testing and confirmed it as hantavirus. That’s why we found out about it so late,” Cobb said.

The two other fatal cases, a 36-year-old Alameda County man who died July 31 and a 45-year-old man from Pennsylvania who died Aug. 12, are both linked to stays in Curry Village’s signature tent cabins sometime in June as well.

Officials are withholding the age, gender and date of death of the third victim at the request of family members.


The names of all eight people infected this summer have also not been released.

Symptoms of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome begin with fever and aches similar to the flu, but can move on to respiratory problems that can result in.. [link to www.uniondemocrat.com]

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome – Yosemite National Park, United States of America – update

12 SEPTEMBER 2012 - As of 7 Sept 2012, The National Park Service (NPS) has reported eight cases of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) among visitors who stayed at Yosemite National Park in California since June 2012. Of these, three were fatal and five cases are recovering.

Park authorities have begun to notify and advise park visitors and those who stayed overnight at "Signature Tent Cabins” at Yosemite's Curry Village or "High Sierra Camps" between 10 June and 24 August 2012 to seek immediate medical attention if they exhibit any symptoms of HPS.


Person-to-person transmission of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome has not been reported in the United States.

Investigations carried out by NPS revealed that seven of the eight reported cases of HPS have been linked to the "Signature Tent Cabins" in Curry Village in Yosemite Valley, and one case stayed in multiple "High Sierra Camps" in Yosemite (a different area of the park than Curry Village) in July.

There is no specific treatment or cure for Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome infection. Early recognition and treatment of infected individuals can reduce disease progres..

Hantavirus in Yosemite: 230,000 more visitors notified
September 13, 2012

Yosemite National Park has again broadened its outreach regarding a recent outbreak of hantavirus, sending notifications to an additional 230,000 people who stayed at the park since early June.

Park officials have already sent thousands of letters to those who stayed overnight in the "signature tent cabins" of Curry Village and lodging in the High Sierra Loop, where eight cases of hantavirus have been traced since mid-June. Three of those cases were fatal.

The new letter, which some recent visitors received via email Wednesday, was sent "because we have heard from concerned guests" who stayed elsewhere, according to a Yosemite statement.

"As you may be aware, Yosemite has been in the news recently related to hantavirus pulmonary syndrome," the letter begins. "Your recent overnight visit to Yosemite did not include a stay in lodging where the known hantavirus infections might have occur..

Hantavirus in Yosemite: Ninth case reported in another visitor
September 13, 2012

Another person was sickened by hantavirus traced to Yosemite National Park, the latest in an outbreak that has grown to nine cases and has killed three visitors since mid-June.

The latest case, which sickened a California resident, is believed to have originated in one of Curry Village's signature tent cabins in early July, park spokesman Scott Gediman said. A total of eight cases have been linked to the insulated signature tent cabins; the other to the High Sierra Loop that connects Yosemite Valley with Tuolumne Meadows and other areas.

But the latest case differs from the others in that it was considered a “hantavirus infection,” officials said. Although very rare, some hantavirus cases don't show the respiratory symptoms found in hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, according to the California Department of Public Health.

The eight other cases tied to Yosemite developed into the full-fledged hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.

The person with the hantavirus infection has since recovered, Gediman said. The park received confirmation of the case Thursday morning.
