Abstract

We conducted phylogeographic modeling to determine the introduction and spread of Guaroa virus in South America. The results suggest a recent introduction of this virus into regions of Peru and Bolivia over the past 60-70 years and emphasize the need for increased surveillance in surrounding areas.
