Hanta Virus is not a new Virus, it already exists around the world.
It cannot be transmitted from person to person.
It is only transmitted by inhaling urine/faeces fumes of infected rodents.
Humans can contract hantavirus when they come in contact with rodents that carry the virus. It can be contracted if someone touches their eyes, nose or mouth after touching rodent droppings, urine, or nesting materials.

What is Hantavirus: Read more
According to the CDC, “Hantaviruses are a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents and can cause varied disease syndromes in people worldwide. Infection with any hantavirus can produce hantavirus disease in people. Hantaviruses in the Americas are known as “New World” hantaviruses and may cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). Other hantaviruses, known as “Old World” hantaviruses, are found mostly in Europe and Asia and may cause hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS).
Each hantavirus serotype has a specific rodent host species and is spread to people via an aerosolized virus that is shed in urine, faeces, and saliva, and less frequently by a bite from an infected host. The most important hantavirus in the United States that can cause HPS is the Sin Nombre virus, spread by the deer mouse.”
