Hantavirus Vs Coronavirus

While the symptoms of hantavirus are similar to that of coronavirus, yet it is less fatal than coronavirus which has taken more than 17,100 lives and infected more than 3,92,000 people so far.

It is estimated that there are more than 1.5 million hantavirus cases in China alone from 1950 to 2007 including 46,000 deaths. The number of hantavirus cases is estimated at 32,000 in Finland from 2005 to 2010 and over 90,000 have been reported in Russia from 1996 to 2006.

While there are vaccines of hantavirus according to Wikipedia, but we don’t have any vaccine for coronavirus yet which makes it much deadlier than hantavirus.
