Abstract

One hundred eighty-three wild rodents and 38 wild birds trapped near Zaria were screened for virus and complement fixing (CF) antibody to Ife virus. Virus was not isolated but CF antibody was detected in 8% Cricetomys gambianus and 31% Arvicanthis niloticus tested. The presence of Ife virus has been documented now in three ecological zones of Nigeria.
