Two More Hanta Virus Cases Confirmed in Yosemite
Health officials confirmed on Thursday that there have been two more cases of Hanta Virus contracted in Yosemite National Park. A third person has died from the rodent-borne disease.
Yosemite Park spokesman Scott Gediman says one of the two cases was the first to be contracted in the Tuolumne Meadows area, and not Curry Village. The Park is now issuing a public health alert to some 12,000 visitors who stayed in the Tuolumne Meadows Lodge or the High Sierra camps this summer.
