Abstract

Hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS) is a severe respiratory disease caused by Sin Nombre virus (SNV) in North America. As of January 1, 2020, SNV has caused 143 laboratory-confirmed cases of HCPS in Canada. We review critical aspects of SNV epidemiology and the ecology, biology, and genetics of HCPS in Canada.
