ABSTRACT Between 1986 and 1993, 72% of rotavirus strains isolated from newborns at five hospitals in New Delhi, India, had long electropherotypes, subgroup II VP6 antigens, and G and P genotypes (G9P11) identical to those of prototype strain 116E. A novel strain with a G9P6 genotype, representing 13% of the isolates, was identified. These results demonstrate that G9P11 and G9P6 rotavirus strains are common in nurseries in New Delhi.
