Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome

The hantanvirus originated in the Hantan river, in south Korea. It begins in rats, and can spread to people who come in contact with rat urine, saliva, or feces. Symptoms can include, a fever and chills, muscle and head aches, and fatigue. Hantan can infect just about any ethnicity and age, however the top 3 races are Caucasian, american indian, and african american. There is no vaccine against hantavirus, but if treated early on, the patient has a much higher chance of survival. my sources are ww.medicinenet.com and wikipedia.com
