Following the report of his death, Hantavirus became a trending topic on social media, with people panicking that it was another COVID-19 and could become a pandemic.

However, it’s been reported that Hantavirus is not a virus and is not airborne, unlike coronavirus.

Hantavirus is contracted when a person comes into contact with rodents that carry the virus.

“Rodent infestation in and around the home remains the primary risk for hantavirus exposure. Even healthy individuals are at risk for HPS infection if exposed to the virus,” Centre for Disease and Prevention said in its website.

Although HPS can’t be passed on from person to person, it can be contracted if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials, states Centers for Disease and Prevention fact sheet.
