Ahead of Print – Spondweni Virus in Field-Caught Culex quinquefasciatus Mosquitoes, Haiti, 2016 – Volume 24, Number 9—September 2018 – Emerging Infectious Diseases journal – CDC

Spondweni virus (SPONV) and Zika virus cause similar diseases in humans. We detected SPONV outside of Africa from a pool of Culex mosquitoes collected in Haiti in 2016. This finding raises questions about the role of SPONV as a human pathogen in Haiti and other Caribbean countries.

Não faltava mais nada!!! Um vírus que provoca uma doença semelhante ao Zika, de nome quase impronunciável, e ainda por cima transmitido pelo pernilongo comum.
