Article Photos: NY state probes case of hantavirus in Adirondacks 1/5

  This June 18, 2010 photo shows a deer mouse during a biological survey at Follenby Pond near Tupper Lake, N.Y. The hantavirus disease is carried in the feces, urine and saliva of deer mice and other rodents, and carried on airborne particles and dust. Michael Vaughan, a research associate professor in mineral physics at Stony Brook University on Long Island, has since recovered from symptoms of the virus after being bitten by a rodent during a hiking trip in the Adirondacks.
