The spread of disease transmitted by Colilargo mice continues to grow in the province of Buenos Aires. Where the virus spreads from a mouse to a human, and not a human, such as the strain circulating in Pataonia, there are now nine confirmed cases. The last one is a 40-year-old man imprisoned in Magdalen prison, which had to be transferred to a high-complex hospital in the capital of Buenos Aires.
The man who was serving the sentence in the Criminal Unit 28 felt general pain with pain in his knuckles and head. In the sanitary unit of the prison, with similar symptoms as the flu, he was subjected to tests that led to the contraction of the hantavirus, so his transfer to San Juan de Dios Hospital in La Plata was determined.
The Provincial Memory Committee (CPM) has already called for the introduction of preventive and deratization measures in prisons, police stations, closed centers for young people and neuropsychiatric hospitals in Buenos Aires to prevent the spread of virus transmitted by mice.
According to the CPM, "high concern about the presence of rodents and inadequate hygiene in detention facilities is that there are two issues that make these places very popular for the spread of the disease."
