Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome--United States: updated recommendations for risk reduction. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention



Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome--United States: updated recommendations for risk reduction. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention



Mmwr. Recommendations and Reports 51(Rr-9): 1-12



This report provides updated recommendations for prevention and control of hantavirus infections associated with rodents in the United States. It supersedes the previous report (CDC. Hantavirus infection--southwestern United States: interim recommendations for risk reduction. MMWR 1993; 42[No. RR-11]: 1-13). These recommendations are based on principles of rodent and infection control, and accumulating evidence that most infections result from exposure, in closed spaces, to active infestations of infected rodents. The recommendations contain updated specific measures and precautions for limiting household, recreational, and occupational exposure to rodents, eliminating rodent infestations, rodent-proofing human dwellings, cleaning up rodent-contaminated areas and dead rodents, and working in homes of persons with confirmed hantavirus infection or buildings with heavy rodent infestations.
