Abstract

Rubella virus failed to replicate in mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus and Culex fatigans) following parenteral inoculation. The virus was demonstrated in mosquitoes tested immediately after inoculation but was not detected in insects sampled 7, 14, and 21 days postinoculation. This experiment provides further evidence that rubella is not an arbovirus, but does not invalidate its classification as a togavirus.
