Dear MAnada


Have you asked Alex Hyatt?  He runs the Ranavirus reference laboratory and should know of most wild outbreaks (especially in fish).

Subject: Locations Affected by Ranaviruses


Dear GRC,


I am trying to compile a list of countries/areas that have had wild outbreaks of vertebrate ranaviruses/iridoviruses to make a distribution map for the Global Ranavirus Reporting System.


I know that I have missed locations that have iridovirus infections in fish because I cannot get access to most of the publications for more specific information than is presented in the abstract.


I would really appreciate any feedback that you could give on the attached list. Please feel free to modify the attached document using Track Changes in MS Word or email me your comments directly at [log in to unmask].


Thank you,
