There exists considerable risk for transfusion transmission of arboviruses due to short periods of asymptomatic viraemia in populations with variable and sometimes extremely high incidence of arboviral infections. Aside from West Nile virus, few arbovirus transfusion transmissions have been proven, mostly due to difficulties in ruling out vector‐borne transmission in recipients with arbovirus disease. Nevertheless, arbovirus transfusion risk models and assessments of viraemia prevalence in… 
Transfusion transmission risk of dengue viruses in an endemic area
TLDR
Both the apparent clinical presentation and the relative short viremia period ofDENV infection prevent dengue viruses from being a highly potential transfusion transmittable agent, and the geographically based selection and donor deferral strategy seems to effectively mitigate the potential risk of DENV transfusion transmission.
Ross River virus in Australian blood donors: possible implications for blood transfusion safety
TLDR
This study aimed to measure the occurrence of RRV viremia among donors who donated at Australian collection centers located in areas with significant RRV transmission during one peak season.
Is transfusion-transmitted dengue fever a potential public health threat?
TLDR
The threat of dengue on the supply of blood products in endemic and non endemic areas is discussed and the specific and non specific measures available for improving the security ofBlood products with regards to this emerging risk are described.
Prevention of transfusion-transmitted infections.
TLDR
A unified approach to TTIs is needed, whereby novel tests and PRTs replace, rather than add to, existing interventions, thereby ameliorating cost and logistical burden to blood centers and hospitals.
Fatal West Nile Virus Infection After Probable Transfusion-Associated Transmission — Colorado, 2012
TLDR
A case of fatal WNV encephalitis in an immunosuppressed patient after probable transfusion-associated transmission is described and further evaluation is required to determine the relative risks and benefits of different strategies to manage MP-NAT–reactive minipools when all constituent donations are nonreactive by subsequent ID-NAT.
Zika Virus and the Blood Supply: What Do We Know?
Screening of Blood Donations for Zika Virus Infection - Puerto Rico, April 3-June 11, 2016.
TLDR
Zika virus, a flavivirus transmitted primarily by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that has been identified as a cause of congenital microcephaly and other serious brain defects, became recognized as a potential threat to blood safety after reports from a 2013-2014 outbreak in French Polynesia.
Arboviruses of Oceania
TLDR
In the long term, the development and integration of novel surveillance, diagnostic and mosquito control technologies will improve the capacity to prevent and respond to arbovirus threats.
Transfusion‐associated infections: 50 years of relentless challenges and remarkable progress
TLDR
This review will address the response of the blood banking community to the major transfusion-transmitted infectious diseases (TTIDs) over the past 50 years, during which time the evolving appreciation of risk and progress in addressing TTIDs has been documented by more than 1000 publications in TRANSFUSION.

Shifting epidemiology of Flaviviridae.
TLDR
The large, recent global outbreaks of severe neurological disease caused by West Nile virus, the increasing frequency of dengue hemorrhagic fever outbreaks in the Americas, and the emergence of yellow fever virus vaccination-associated viscerotropic disease, are new clinical epidemiologic trends.
Transmission of West Nile virus through blood transfusion in the United States in 2002.
TLDR
Screening of potential donors with the use of nucleic acid-based assays for West Nile virus may reduce this risk of acquisition of the virus through transfused red cells, platelets, and fresh-frozen plasma.

Changing patterns of chikungunya virus: re-emergence of a zoonotic arbovirus.
TLDR
Outbreaks of chikungunya virus disease are reviewed and a comprehensive analysis and comparison of clinical presentation, virus– vector associations and viral genetics are presented to assess the possibility of further expansion and re-emergence of CHIKV illness.

TLDR
YF is a zoonotic disease that cannot be eradicated, therefore instituting preventive vaccination through routine childhood vaccination in endemic countries, can significantly reduce the burden of the disease.
Yellow fever: a disease that has yet to be conquered.
TLDR
Molecular epidemiologic data suggest there are seven genotypes of YFV that are geographically separated, and outbreaks of disease are more associated with particular genotypes, which present serious potential public health problems to large population centers.
Problem solved? West Nile virus and transfusion safety.
TLDR
By July 2003, shortly before a second seasonal outbreak of similar magnitude began, collaborations among blood-collection organizations, test-kit manufacturers, and government agencies culminated in near-universal screening of U.S. blood donations for West Nile virus with the use of newly developed nucleic acid amplification tests.
