The following is based partly on the authors' abstract of this fourth part of a series. Four strains of virus were isolated from ticks from the Changa Manga Forest area of Lahore District, Pakistan. Serological tests showed that there were three distinct arthropod-borne viruses. Two of these were strains of Wad Medani and Crimean haemorrhagic fever viruses and the third resembled a virus previously isolated from Argasid ticks in the same forest area.
