In theory, hantavirus can be found in rodent excreta, but you are not in one of the 'high risk' areas such as the 4 corners region of the U.S. Since there are other diseases associated with mouse droppings, I would just keep an eye on the kids - if they develop any fevers, cough or respiratory symptoms in the next week see a doc ASAP. Prefer an ID doctor. ...Read more

Possibly: This will depend on what country, and sometimes what region within a country you are traveling to. Undeveloped countries typically have higher rates of water contamination, which increase a traveler's risk of getting an infection (e. Coli, viruses, etc.) this not only applies to what you drink, but also to foods washed in this water, ice cubes, etc. Bottled water that you unseal is safest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
