Areas in northwestern Tanzania where seroprevalence of antibodies to peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV) was studied in cattle and buffalo. Cattle were sampled in 2011; all had been alive during a 2008 PPRV outbreak among small ruminants. Arrow shows location of 1 village affected during the 2008 outbreak (7). Buffalo were sampled during 2010–2012 in Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area; the locations of PPRV-seronegative buffalo are shown.
