A man would have died for Hantavirus Gualeguaychú: the official word is expected

Infectologist Ignacio Bourlot, ElDía desde Cero -monday until Friday, 9-12, FM 104.1-

So far, there were no positive cases across the province as ElDía reported in this Tuesday's edition, although from the century hospital, four cases were mentioned which were made after Gualeguaychu.

Like most fatalities in the region, the last week would be "a patient from rural areas that are highly exposed to favorable work and epidemiological conditions for obtaining Hantavirus, coexistence with rodents."

"This suggests the same cases we usually talk about," the infectious disease specialist said.
