    Feb 27th: Scientific Seminar 02:00PM:”Circulation of Nipah virus at the Human-Flying fox interface in Cambodia”

    Title: “Circulation of Nipah virus at the Human-Flying fox interface in Cambodia”

    Speaker: DUONG Veasna, MD, PhD Deputy-Head, Virology Unit, Institut Pasteur in Cambodia

    Abstract:

    Little is known about the circulation of NiV and its epidemiology in Cambodia. An integrated approach was undertaken at two flying fox roosts in Kandal and Battambang provinces to study bat ecology, NiV circulation in bat and human population and human practices and perceptions in Cambodia from 2013 to 2016. Our findings help provide recommendations to interrupt potential transmission routes and limit the risk of emergence through environmental and behaviour changes.
