Possible Emergence of West Caucasian Bat Virus in Africa
Figure 1. A) Map of Kenya showing locations of the bat collections, numbered in order of collection. B). Antibody titers to West Caucasian bat virus (WCBV) in Miniopterus bats from 4 of the locations. A modified rapid fluorescent focus inhibition test for WCBV-neutralizing antibodies was used. Bats with 50% end-point neutralizing titers >1 log10 were considered seropositive. Numbers of negative bats for each location are circled below the cutoff line.
