A total of 835 rodents captured in Beijing, China, were tested for hantavirus infection. Fifty-five (6.6%) were positive for viral RNA when lung tissue samples were examined by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. Of 666 sera collected from the above rodents, 50 (7.5%) were positive for IgG antibody by ELISA. Among the 50 seropositive rodents, 37 were positive for viral RNA. In addition, five rodents were positive for viral RNA but negative for IgG antibody. The infection rates… CONTINUE READING
