Write a response paper on Hanta Virus

In Alone some of the countries they “survived” in had rodents infected with Hantavirus and they were advised not to eat the rodents. I was curious what Hantavirus was and why it was so dangerous but I never looked into it further, until now!Hantavirus is a single stranded RNA type virus. The Hantavirus is a negative sense RNA strand. Typically the hantavirus infects rodents and is usually spread by rodents. The hantavirus is usually spread through small virus droplets being suspended in the air and can be passed from rodents to humans through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva. The hantavirus causes hantavirus disease in humans. There are two variants of the virus one seen mostly in Europe and Asia infects humans with the hantavirus and causes hemorrhagic fever (blood vessels become damaged and leaky) with renal syndrome (kidney failure). The hantavirus variant found in the Americas causes hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (effects the lungs and respiratory system). In the United States Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome has a 36% fatality rate once contracted. Outside of a host the hantavirus can survive at most 1 week outdoors in dark cool places. It can only last a few hours when exposed to direct sunlight. Inside a host the virus takes about 2-4 weeks to start showing symptoms.
