The DCC(Disease Control Centre) says that the virus is spread mainly from rodents. It goes on to say that infection with any of the hantavirus patients can cause hantavirus disease to other people.

Hantaviruses in the Americas are known as “New World” hantaviruses and may cause hantavirus pulmonary(relating to lungs) syndrome (HPS). 

Other hantaviruses, known as “Old World” hantaviruses, are found mostly in Europe and Asia and may cause hemorrhagic(a condition in which a person bleeds too much and cannot stop the flow of blood) fever with renal(relating to kidneys) syndrome (HFRS),” the CDC website said.
