I am working on a project about Hantavirus. My group is having a difficult time finding information about Hantavirus outbreaks in other parts of the world in the past. I read somewhere that the virus was responsible for many deaths in the Korean war, and that it has infected Chinese people during rice harvest for thousands of years. Also, has anyone read any articles in any newspapers or national periodicals on Hantavirus outbreak that have overly sensationalized or misinformed the public about the virus? We looking at many different aspects of the Hantavirus and would appreciate any help that we could get.
