20. Actually it sounds similar to a Hanta virus.
Edited on Sun Aug-31-03 01:10 PM by HereSince1628
recall the 4-corners outbreak in the mid-90's, seemingly healthy people in the morning...dead by the evening

If I remember correctly inhalation was a common portal of entry... and since rodents pass the virus in their urine people living in or cleaning out places with lots of rodent activity are at high risk.

on edit: here is a link to info on Hantavirus
