The spread of the disease transmitted by the mouse colilargo continues to grow in the province of Buenos Aires. Where the virus is transmitted from a mouse to a person rather than to a humane way like a species circulating in Pataonia, there are now 9 confirmed cases. The last one was hit by a 40-year-old man in Magdalen Prison, who had to be transferred to a high-profile hospital in the capital of Buenos Aires.
The man serving the sentence in the criminal unit 28 felt a general illness with joint and headache. In a sanitary prison unit with flu-like symptoms, he was subjected to tests that led to hantavirus contractions, and his transfer to San Juan de Dios Hospital in La Plata was determined.
The Provincial Commissions of Memory (CPM) has already called for measures to be taken to prevent and deratize in prisons, police stations, closed youth centers and neuropsychiatric hospitals in Buenos Aires to avoid the spread of virus transmitted by the mouse.
According to the CPM, through prison inspections, "there was great concern about the presence of rodents and the lack of hygiene in the places where detainees reside, the two issues that make these places very favorable for the spread of the disease."
