  • INFORMATION on the survival of rinderpest virus in stored infected bovine tissues is pertinent to the problem of the export of meat from rinderpestendemic areas. The literature contains numerous snippets of contradictory information1. The confusion has arisen through the use of thermal death points which are meaningless and fail to express the response of a virus to heat. Accordingly, a fresh appraisal of the effect of heat on the infectivity of rinderpest-infected bovine tissues was made.
