Abstract

Abstract

Rodents living near two fatal human cases of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in California were surveyed for evidence of hantavirus infection. Seventeen (15%) (14 and one each of , and ) of 114 rodents tested had evidence (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or polymerase chain reaction) of hantavirus infection. This suggests that mice, and in particular, may be the reservoir for the virus causing this newly recognized disease in California, as previously reported for New Mexico and Arizona.
