Caption: Biomedical illustration of Hantavirus attacking a human cell. The cutaway views show the three individually encapsulated strands of RNA inside and the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi bodies of the host cell where the virus replicates. Humans become infected by contact with urine or other rodent waste, causing potentially fatal haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Immune system macrophages (yellow) are seen seeking and destroying the virions.
