Outbreak News Interviews

Dec 18, 2020

In late 2018 into early 2019, an outbreak of a form of hantavirus called Andes virus, swept through a small town in Argentina infecting 34 and killing 11.

Researchers led by a team from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) attribute the size of the outbreak to a super spreader event.

Joining me to discuss Andes virus and the Argentina outbreak is Dr. Gustavo Palacios, Chief of Molecular Biology at USAMRIID, and National Research Council Fellow, Dr. Nicholas Di Paola.
