Hantaan virus and Dobrava virus typically produce severe disease, whereas Seoul virus produces moderate disease and Puumala virus produces mild disease.

For detection of hantavirus IgG and IgM, we used an immunofluorescent assay (IFA) with mosaic slides containing SEOV and other orthohantaviruses Puumala virus, Sin Nombre virus, Hantaan virus, Dobrava-Belgrade virus, and Saaremaa virus (Euroimmun, Lubeck, Germany), according to the manufacturer's instructions (16).

This finding contrasts with those for other hantaviruses, for which there are clear spatial association between virus strains and carrier hosts, such as vole-associated Puumala virus (6,12).
HFRS is caused mainly by Old World hantaviruses, such as Hantaan virus (HTNV), Seoul virus (SEOV), Dobrava-Belgrade virus, and Puumala virus, that are transmitted to humans by inhalation of dust contaminated with rodent excreta (saliva, urine, and feces) or bite by an infected rodent.
