    Zoonotic Virus Genetic Description in the Central African Republic Virus for Use as a Systems Integration When Trying to Test for Persons Infected and Stomach Flu in Food and Water
    Author(s): Marianne Wedde*

    Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an alphavirus spread by mosquito bites. Over the last decade, the virus has undergone mutations that increase its transmissibility by the Aedes albopictus vector, resulting in massive outbreaks in the Indian Ocean, Asia, and Central Africa. The recent introduction of competent A. albopictus vectors into the Central African Republic (CAR) raises the possibility of a Chikungunya fever (CHIKF) epidemic in this region. We conducted this study to assess the genetic diversity and background of CHIKV strains isolated in the CAR between 1975 and 1984, as well as to estimate the ability of local strains to adapt to A. albopictus. Our findings suggest that local CHIKV strains have a genetic background compatible with rapid adaptation to A. albopictus, as previously suggested. Other Central African countries have reported similar findings (Allen B et al ., 2017)... View More»
