A) Geographic locations (indicated by stars) where respiratory syncytial virus genotype ON1 sequences had been detected and reported as of September 8, 2013. B) Number of ON1 sequences present in GenBank as of September 8, 2013, including sequences submitted for the viruses detected in Kilifi, Kenya, during 2012. The month and year that the first ON1 virus was reported for each country is given on the far right. C) Monthly reported detections of the ON1 viruses with sequences from the combined w
