The only other survivor of this last year's Washington state hantavirus outbreak, Samantha King, from Issaquah, WA is interviewed by KIRO-7's Natasha Chen.
Samantha has displayed some really awesome toughness in coming back from this devastating illness. Many thanks to her for consenting to this interview and informing people about hanta.
A study at Vanderbilt University is investigating the antibodies, etc. in the blood of hantavirus survivors, and Samantha is participating in that study.
It's now October! The hantavirus risk has jumped! It's the time of year where I need to regularly watch out for deer mouse corpse mines where ever I'm walking!
