Identification of likely natural hosts for equine morbillivirus

Communicable Diseases Intelligence 20(22): 476

Identification of likely natural hosts for equine morbillivirus

The isolation of a paramyxovirus from three species of flying fox in Queensland is described. The species are Pteropus alecto (black flying fox), Pteropus scapulatus (little red flying fox) and Pteropus poliocephalus (grey headed flying fox). The virus appears to be identical to the equine morbillivirus which was associated with acute equine respiratory syndrome and two human deaths in two Queensland outbreaks.
