Hantavirus is an enveloped, helical virus in the Bunyaviridae family.
Hantavirus infection causes damages to endothelial cells accompanied by coagulation disorders (lung, kidneys). Additionally, it may result in haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) or Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS).
The viruses are not transmitted directly from human to human, but via animal faeces, urine and saliva.
