An Eastern Asia infection caused by Hantavirus, a Bunyavirus isolated in the Hantaan River, acquired via aerosolized rodent feces and urine—Rattus rattus, Apodemus agrarius, Clethrionomys glariolus, Microtus spp; 100,000 cases/year in China, and may be increased
Prognosis Mortality rate is determined by the vector itself, Apodemus-associated infections—3–7% mortality is worse than nephropathia epidemica, which has a vole—Clethrionomys vector
