High Seroprevalence of Jamestown Canyon Virus among Deer and Humans, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Abstract

Using residual serum samples from Nova Scotia, Canada, we found that 87.8% of tested deer and an estimated 20.6% of the human population were infected with Jamestown Canyon virus. Human seropositivity reached 48.2% in 1 region. This virus may be an underrecognized cause of disease in Nova Scotia.
