There was an outbreak of the deadly Hunta VIrus in the SW US a number of years ago. It kills before they can diagnos and treat you. It is carried by desert mice and it only occurs when the population of mice explodes. You can inhale dust while cleaning your garage where these mice left traces of feces or urine. We visited Mesa Verde during this time and signs were posted everywhere about it. Dust containing feces or urine in a warehouse could occur. I would think...
