Summary

Data are presented on the distribution of zoonotic contagious non-transmissible (without transmission via arthropods) hemorrhagic fevers with renal syndrome on the basis of reported human diseases (33 countries), detection of antibody to these viruses (37 countries), or isolating a hantavirus and detecting antibody to it in small mammals (38 countries). Hantaviruses have been isolated from 53 species of mammals. The principal approaches to prophylaxis against this infection are elaborated.
