Hantavirus, TEM

IMAGE NUMBER: 2R4942 LICENSE: RIGHTS MANAGED

Color enhanced transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of Hantavirus. Hantavirus is a respiratory disease carried in wild rodents such as deer mice. Mice do not appear ill while carrying the hantavirus. People become infected after breathing airborne particles of urine, droppings or saliva from infected rodents. Hantavirus causes flu-like symptoms that eventually cause the lungs to fill with fluid, making breathing diffucult. Medical attention must be saught as soon as infection is detected. Most cases of Hantavirus reported in the U.S. have been in the rural Western states.
