Reoviruses are a common class of enteric viruses capable of infecting a broad range of mammalian species, typically with low pathogenicity. Previous studies have shown that reoviruses are common in raw water sources and are often found along with other animal viruses. This suggests that in addition to the commonly monitored enteroviruses, reoviruses might serve as an informative target for monitoring fecal contamination of drinking water sources. Mammalian reoviruses were detected and… CONTINUE READING
