      Anyway, this book is really interesting. It goes and describes the rise of a few epidemic viruses. The Sin Nombre Hantavirus from or so, the Ebola outbreak from , and some others. It goes through some of the cases like a mystery novel/5(28).   Those who develop hantavirus pulmonary syndrome have a 38% of dying from it. News of the man's death comes amid the coronavirus crisis-- .

    Hantavirus, any member of a genus of viruses (Hantavirus) of the family Bunyaviridae that cause acute respiratory illnesses in humans. The hantaviruses are rodent-borne viruses, each of which has been evolutionarily adapted to a specific rodent host. Human infection occurs where people come into. Hantavirus is a virus that causes hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. This is a disease that can cause symptoms similar to the flu, and may continue its devastating path through the human body and create fatal breathing issues. Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome can be caused by many different strains of hantavirus.
