New dengue virus found in Malaysia

The New Indian Express, November 27, 2013


It is just not the four known viruses that cause dengue — another one has been recently found in Malaysia. This will only add to the woes of vaccine makers and need more preventive measures. “We discovered and characterized a new dengue serotype,” said Nikos Vasilakis, a virologist at UTMB. When contacted, Vasilakis told Express, “We found the virus in east Malaysian state of Sarawak.”
