Abstract

From October 2011 to April 2012, 852 human hantavirus infections were notified in Germany, of which 580 (68%) were in Baden-Württemberg. Case numbers started to rise earlier than they did before the previous outbreaks in 2007 and 2010, and are the largest ever reported in this state during October to April of any year. The early rise could be due to a beech mast year in 2011, followed by an early and massive reproduction of the reservoir bank vole populations during winter 2011 and spring 2012. .
