The study briefly presents some ecological and epidemiological aspects of modern situation on hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), orthohantavirus infection leading in incidence rate of rural population among all feral herd infections registered in the Russian Federation. We marked the main characteristics of epidemiological process in pest spots of orthohantaviruses Hantaan and Seoul. The study shows the influence of human economic activity on epizootic situation and incidences of HFRS in urban and rural pest spots of Primorskiy territory, and on the formation of different socio-professional groups at high risk of HFRS.
