Statistics by Country for Hantavirus

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Hantavirus: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Hantavirus are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Hantavirus statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Hantavirus in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Hantavirus: The word 'prevalence' of Hantavirus usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Hantavirus at any given time (i.e. people with Hantavirus). The term 'incidence' of Hantavirus means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Hantavirus diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Hantavirus). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Incidence (annual) of Hantavirus: 33 annual cases of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome notified in USA 1999 (MMWR 1999)
Incidence Rate for Hantavirus: approx 1 in 8,242,424 or 0.00% or 32 people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Incidence Rate for Hantavirus to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above incidence rate for Hantavirus to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these incidence extrapolations for Hantavirus are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual incidence of Hantavirus in any region:
