The virus has been documented in North America since 1993 but, as stated by the Ontario Ministry of Health. The spokesperson pointed out that almost all types of the virus do not propagate by the interaction between people..Hantavirus names differ according to location. In America, it is known as hantaviruses called “New World,” while in Europe and Asia it is known as hantaviruses known as “Old World.” New World hantaviruses can cause pulmonary hantavirus syndrome (HPS) and Old World hantavirus can cause renal syndrome (HFRS) hemorrhagic fever.
