Mokola virus in domestic mammals, South Africa.Emerg Infect Dis. 2007 Sep; 13(9):1371-3.EI
We recently identified 2 Mokola viruses from domestic mammals (a dog and a cat) in South Africa. These cases occurred 8 years after the last reported case of infection with this virus. Our findings emphasize the endemicity of rabies-related lyssaviruses in South Africa and the need to better understand the epidemiology of Mokola viruses.
