Rabies in Sri Lanka: splendid isolation.

by Susilakanthi Nanayakkara, Jean S Smith, Charles E Rupprecht
Emerging infectious diseases ()

Abstract

Rabies virus exists in dogs on Sri Lanka as a single, minimally divergent lineage only distantly related to other rabies virus lineages in Asia. Stable, geographically isolated virus populations are susceptible to local extinction. A fully implemented rabies-control campaign could make Sri Lanka the first Asian country in >30 years to become free of rabies virus.
