Abstract

Sera from rats (Rattus norvegicus), domestic animals and man in Hong Kong were studied by immunofluorescent antibody assay and plaque reduction neutralization tests for evidence of infection by Hantaan-related viruses. Antibody probably arising from infection by Seoul or a Seoul-like virus was detected in rat and human sera (and one pig serum), highlighting the potential public health importance of this group of viruses in Hong Kong, and in the region.
