Continuing surveillance of Usutu virus infection in Austria - geographical spread, susceptible species and recognition of human cases

Abstract
During 2 consecutive years the further spread of Usutu virus in Austria will be investigated. The applied methods will be monitoring of dead birds, monitoring of mosquitoes and serological investigations of wild birds. In addition, virolgical and serological investigations of human blood samples will help to clarify whether Usutu virus is also associated with diseases of humans.
