Title: Second case of European bat lyssavirus type 2 detected in a Daubenton’s bat in Finland.
Author: Nokireki, T.; Sironen, T.; Smure, T.; Karkamo, V.; Sihvonen, L.; Gadd, T.
Abstract: European bat lyssavirus type 2 (EBLV-2) was detected in Finland in a Daubenton’s bat (Myotis daubentonii) found in the municipality of Inkoo (60°02′45″N, 024°00′20″E). The bat showed neurological signs and was later found dead. The laboratory analysis revealed the presence of lyssavirus, and the virus was characterized as EBLV-2. This isolation of EBLV-2 was the second time that the virus has been detected in a Daubenton’s bat in Finland. This provides additional proof that EBLV-2 is endemic in the Finnish Daubenton’s bat population.
