Abstract

In 2014, an outbreak of Getah virus (GETV) infection occurred in Japan in a horse population that was inoculated with a vaccine against GETV. In this study, we investigated the seroprevalence of GETV infection among wild boars in Japan. Interestingly, the highest rate of anti-GETV-positive wild boars was observed in 2013, which gradually decreased during 2014–2016. The results suggested that GETV spread among wild boars around 2012, resulting in the 2014 outbreak. Getah virus (GETV), which taxonomically belongs to family responsible for fetal death and reproductive disorders [5, Togaviridae and genus Alphavirus, is an arthropod-borne 6]. Other animals such as birds, cattle, goats, and humans virus (arbovirus) transmitted by mosquitoes [1]. GETV was have been reported to possess anti-GETV antibodies [7–10]. first isolated from Culex mosquitoes in 1955 in Malaysia [2]. Since pigs can develop viremia, they are thought to be the GETV has subsequently been reported in Japan, Australia, main amplifying host for GETV in nature.
