Mouse tests positive for hantavirus, squirrels positive for plague!!!!!!!Ca, NM   San Diego County officials are advising the public to take extra care when cleaning mice and rodent nests after a mouse, caught in routine trapping, tested positive for hantavirus. The mouse was caught in North County’s Pala Mesa and is the sixth mouse to test positive for the lethal virus this year.

The New Mexico Department of Health is reporting a case of plague in a 43-year-old woman from Rio Arriba County who is currently hospitalized. Confirmatory testing was conducted at the Department’s Scientific Laboratory Division. The first plague case in New Mexico in 2014 was reported in April in a 57-year-old man from Torrance County who is still recovering. An environmental investigation will take place at the woman’s home to look for ongoing risk to others in the surrounding area.

“Plague activity in New Mexico is usually highest during the summer months, so it is especially important now to take precautions to avoid rodents and their fleas which can expose you to to plague,” said Department of Health Secretary Retta Ward, MPH. “This person was most likely exposed to plague when her dogs brought infected fleas back into the home.”

AN American doctor stricken with the deadly Ebola virus while in Liberia and brought to the United States for treatment in a special isolation ward is improving, the top US health official said yesterday.

Dr Kent Brantly, a 33-year-old father of two young children, was able to walk with help from an ambulance after he was flown on Saturday to Atlanta, where he was being treated by infectious disease specialists at Emory University Hospital."

Ebola Tested Across the Nation; Government Suppresses Info      <blockquote>               5 Aug 2014, 1:48 PM PDT

After Tuesday's Ebola update news conference in New York, confusion reigned on the "six" patients reportedly being treated for possible Ebola infections in the Big Apple. Breitbart News has learned that the confusion stems from there not being six potential Ebola cases in New York-- it seems that the CDC was talking about six patients nationwide, meaning the scare has spread across the country.

In a report on Tuesday, CNN's Sanjay Gupta cited the CDC saying that there were six patients being watched for the deadly virus. From there news agencies across the country reported that there were six just in New York. Gupta did not specify New York, though, and it seems that his words were misconstrued by subsequent reports.

A few hours after the conference, New York's Mr. Sinai corrected the record in a press release, saying that contrary to recent reports, "there is only one patient currently at Mount Sinai being tested for the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)."

Sources in the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene confirmed that there was only one patient in New York City who was isolated for fear of the virus.

As to the five other patients, ABC News reported on Tuesday that "The CDC said has tested blood samples from six people with possible Ebola symptoms who had recently traveled to West Africa." The report did not specify where all six patients were, but did not suggest they were all in New York. In fact, the same ABC report mentions a case in Ohio, where a woman tested negative for the virus.

Additionally, the CDC reported that one patient at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland was tested for Ebola. While testing negative for Ebola, the woman was found to have contracted malaria.

This leaves three patients across the country that have been tested for Ebola, with the CDC not stating whether they tested positively or negatively, or where they are.

Breitbart News has reached out to the CDC to request more information on these three cases-- particularly location and viral status. No reply has been received at press time.
