  1. Its dangerous, but its not as highly infectious as coronavirus.

    >The hantaviruses that cause human illness in the United States cannot be transmitted from one person to another. For example, you cannot get these viruses from touching or kissing a person who has HPS or from a health care worker who has treated someone with the disease.

    >In Chile and Argentina, rare cases of person-to-person transmission have occurred among close contacts of a person who was ill with a type of hantavirus called Andes virus

  2. You can only get it if you ingest fluids from rodents, which are the carriers. If an infected rat pisses on your bagel and then you eat it, you can get infected but you are highly unlikely to infect someone else. In short, don’t eat rodents or what they excrete and we’re fine.

  3. That’s waaaay over in China. Luckily that could never happen here!

  4. Stop the planet, i want off

  5. > Hantavirus is named for the [Hantan River](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hantan_River) area in [South Korea](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Korea) where an early outbreak was observed, and was isolated in 1976

    > Hantavirus infections have been reported from all continents but Australia.

    > Hantavirus is not contagious from person to person. The virus spreads from rodents to humans
