This person is a zero patient or index case. The first one who was infected was a 14-year-old girl who became the first victim of the Hanta virus two weeks later.

According to official information, not only the girl, but also four other guests were infected by half: three men and two women had a virus, one of them was the daughter of the patient. The seventh pollution was one of the previous three employees. She was followed by an administrative staff of the 64-year-old Epujena Hospital and was the first girl to die. There was contact with a bus ticket vendor who contacted one of the affected people.

With these first data there is no doubt that the virus in the mouth and the main cause of the outbreak of the disease is the transfer of the person from the affected human fever within the first three days. For this reason, the Municipality yesterday quarantined the city and even banned awakening.

The infected number 20 became a woman who had been in contact with a hospital worker in Epujena, the other party's son who visited the party, and the list was closed (up to 23 of the infected). male from the other party's wife.

Most of those who had closed the virus did not come into contact with the mouse, which is the main carrier of the virus, stools, urine or saliva. Most infections have come from person to person, as shown in the detail provided by the Chubut Provincial Ministry of Health, which provides daily information on the source of the outbreak, which now and in spite of all the measures taken seems uncontrollable.
