Article
Wild reservoirs of Japanese encephalitis virus are under‐studied globally, which presents critical knowledge gaps for JEV epidemiology and infection ecology despite decades of received wisdom regarding this high‐impact mosquito‐borne virus. As a result, ardeid birds, generally understood to be the primary reservoirs for JEV, as well as other waterb...

Background Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) is a zoonotic mosquito-borne virus that causes a significant burden of disease across Asia, particularly in India, with high mortality in children. JEV circulates in wild ardeid birds and domestic pig reservoirs, both of which generate sufficiently high viraemias to infect vector mosquitoes, which can th...

Japanese encephalitis constitutes a significant burden of disease across Asia, particularly in India, with high mortality in children. This zoonotic mosquito-borne disease is caused by the Flavivirus, Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV), and circulates in wild ardeid bird and domestic pig reservoirs both of which generate sufficiently high viremias t...

Karnataka, a state in south India, reported its first case of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection on March 8, 2020, more than a month after the first case was reported in India. We used a combination of contact tracing and genomic epidemiology to trace the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the state up until May 21, 2020 (1...

Purpose of review: Rabies is virtually always fatal; however, it is nearly 100% preventable with timely and appropriate prophylactic immunization. This review summarizes the recently revised WHO guidelines for rabies prophylaxis published in 2018, following a scientific review by a strategic advisory group of experts on immunization. The scientifi...
