Caption: Illustration of hantavirus attacking a human cell; featuring a cutaway view showing the virion's interior, with three individually encapsulated strands of RNA. The virus replicates in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi bodies of the host cell. Humans may be infected by coming in contact with urine or other rodent waste. Haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) are potentially fatal diseases caused by hantavirus. In this image, the immune system reacts with macrophages (yellow) which seek and destroy the virions.
