Spring Survival Quiz | The Survival Doctorby James Hubbard, MD, MPH

Springtime. It always reminds me of the cycle of life, rebirth, new beginnings. And, of course, it’s a time to get outside, to hike, camp, play … and spring clean.

This is the first of a two-part true/false spring quiz to help you get you prepared for all of the above. In the comments, let me know how you do!

Question #1 of 10

Every year a few people die of hantavirus, an infection that causes severe aching and fever, followed by trouble breathing.

True or false? One of the ways you can get hantavirus is by inhaling it from certain rat or mouse feces, so you should take precautions when cleaning barns, sheds, and the like.
