Sin Nombre virus--the most common pathogen responsible for hantavirus in the United States--accounted for the infections in 32 participants; the other patient was infected with Bayou virus.
The viruses known to cause HPS on the North American continent are Bayou virus, Black Creek Canal virus (BCCV), Choclo virus (CHOV), New York virus, and Sin Nombre virus (SNV) (3-7).
Other HPS-associated viruses include New York and Monongahela viruses (mice of the genus Peromyscus are reservoirs), associated with HPS in the eastern United States (7-9), Bayou virus, found in the southeastern United States (Oligoryzomys palustris rice rats are reservoirs) (10-12), and Black Creek Canal virus (Sigmodon hispidus cotton rats are reservoirs), which was associated with 1 case of HPS in Florida (13,14).
