Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is caused by sinnocavirus (SNV) and its associated hantavirus infection. A syndrome characterized by pulmonary capillary leakage and cardiovascular involvement, also known as hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPs). In the United States, at least 30 states have had this disease. In recent years, there are also cases reported in Europe, Germany and Sweden. Incidence rate is high throughout the whole year, but the incidence is high in spring and summer. The incubation period of the disease ranges from several days to 6 weeks or more. At present, there is no HPS discovery in China, but China is a high incidence area of epidemic hemorrhagic fever. With the emergence of HPS in the European continent outside the Americas, the differentiation between severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and HPS in China in recent years is particularly important and needs to be highly vigilant.
