Figure 1. Geographic distribution of confirmed cases of hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS) in Canada, 1989–2019. The map shows the locations of cases in Canada based on provinces where Sin Nombre virus infection was likely contracted; data were provided on diagnostic requisitions, physician reports, or follow-up investigations. Numbers in circles indicate number of cases for that province. The locations of 15 cases could not be mapped due to insufficient information.
