Clinically HFRS is manifested as mild, moderate, or severe. Therefore, the number of cases of Hantavirus’ infection may be underestimated, and should be included in(More)
In order to have a first insight into the epidemiology of hantaviruses in Albania, 263 small mammals (248 rodents, 15 insectivores) were captured in 352 locations in 29 districts and tested for hantavirus infection. Dobrava-Belgrade virus (DOBV) was detected in 10 of 148 (6.7%) Apodemus flavicollis rodents. DOBV-positive A. flavicollis were detected in six(More)
