HFRS is caused by the prototypic hantavirus Hantaan and by Dobrava virus, Puumala virus (PUUV), and Seoul virus in Eurasia; HCPS is caused by Andes virus, Sin Nombre virus and related hantaviruses in the Americas.
Phylogenetic analysis confirmed that the hantavirus involved belonged to Puumala virus species and was most closely related to the earlier described genetic variants from Finland, particularly to those circulating at Konnevesi (62[degrees]34'N, 26[degrees]24'E) and Puumala (61[degrees]52'N, 28[degrees]17'E) localities (Figure 2).
Although 3 hantaviruses, Puumala virus (PUUV), Dobrava-Belgrade virus, and Tula virus circulate in rodent hosts in Germany and can infect humans (6-8), most hantavirus infections in humans are caused by PUUV.
