Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a deadly disease transmitted by infected rodents through urine, droppings, or saliva. Humans can contract the disease when they breathe in the virus from the air. In Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome , students will learn about the symptoms of this disease, as well as the effects, treatment, and history of HPS, which was first recognized in 1993 and has since been identified throughout the United States. Although rare, it is potentially deadly, and awareness is the first step toward prevention.
