Hantavirus has killed three campers at Yosemite this season, and thousands may have been exposed to the virus. Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the symptoms and explains how it's spread.
To the frustration of local residents, a handful of people in the region around Yosemite have died over past 20 years from hantavirus (and a couple other local deaths from years prior are unsolved and local residents suspect hantavirus) , but have not gotten much public health or media attention. Serious training for the local doctors and hospitals, such as Mammoth Lakes, at least in diagnosis and first-care would be valuable so people aren't sent home without treatment.
