I am thinking I have this right now. It is very scary. I have been exposed to rice rats and their droppings/urine here in Central Florida. I have been to my doctor and he is sending me to a infectous disease doctor. If you are anywhere near any rodents at all or could be, please be careful. This Hantavirus is really bad. You have better odds of surviving a round of Russian roulete. This is not something to even take chances with.
