    VI 22    Adenovirus    

    Most commonly causes illness of the respiratory system, but may also cause gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and rashes.


    VI 23    Astrovirus     

    Causes diarrhoea and viral gastroenteritis.


    VI 24    Avian Influenza Virus / H5N1    

    Infections have been documented among humans, sometimes causing severe illness and death.


    VI 25    Borna Virus     

    May play a role in some human neurological and psychiatric conditions including bipolar disorder and depression. Has been found in animals in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.


    VI 26    Coronavirus    

    Primarily infects the upper respiratory and gastrointestinal tract, causing the common cold.


    VI 27    Dengue Fever    

    An infectious tropical disease, but seen as a potential biological warfare agent. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, and a characteristic skin rash that is similar to measles.


    VI 28    Ebola Virus (REBOV, ZEBOV, N and Sierra Leone 2014)

    Causes Ebola hemorrhagic fever. Mainly restricted to Africa but seen as a potential biological warfare agent.


    VI 29    Echovirus    

    Symptoms depend on the site of infection but may include croup, encephalitis, meningitis, myocarditis, mouth sores, upper respiratory infection, sore throat, pneumonia. The leading causes of acute febrile illness in infants and young children, and is the most common cause of aseptic meningitis.


    VI 30    Enterovirus     
    Has been associated with hand, foot, and mouth disease.

    VI 31    GB Virus C / GBV-C    
    Formerly known as hepatitis G virus (HGV). Known to infect humans, but is not known to cause human disease. Approximately 2% of healthy US blood donors have the virus in their blood stream, and up to 13% of blood donors have antibodies to E2 protein, indicating possible prior infection. Some studies have suggested that co-infection with GBV-C slows the progression of HIV disease.

    VI 32    Hepatitis D    
    Occurs only when Hepatitis B (HBV) is present, resulting in more severe complications compared to infection with HBV alone.

    VI 33    Hepatitis E    
    Prevalent in most developing countries, and common in any country with a hot climate.

    VI 34    Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Type 1 / HTLV-I/ Adult T-Cell Lymphoma Virus Type 1    
    Has been seriously implicated in several kinds of diseases, including HTLV-I-associated myelopathy and Strongyloides stercoralis, and as a virus cancer link for leukaemia.

    VI 35    Human T-Lymphotropic Virus Type 2    
    Associated with neurologic disorders and chronic pulmonary infections. Found predominantly in IV drug users, Native Americans, Caribbean and South American Indian groups.

    VI 36    Japanese Encephalitis Virus    
    Causes encephalitis. Transmitted by mosquitoes. Most prevalent in Southeast Asia and the Far East.

    VI 37    Norovirus / Norwalk Virus    
    Causes about half of all non-bacterial gastroenteritis cases around the world.

    VI 38    Parainfluenza Virus 1    
    Parainfluenza viruses are the second most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in younger children, including croup. Also upper respiratory tract illness (a cold and sore throat).

    VI 39    Parainfluenza Virus 2    
    Parainfluenza viruses are the second most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in younger children, including croup. Also upper respiratory tract illness (a cold and sore throat).

    VI 40    Parainfluenza Virus 3    
    Parainfluenza viruses are the second most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in younger children, including croup. Also upper respiratory tract illness (a cold and sore throat).This strain also associated with bronchiolitis and pneumonia.

    VI 41    Parainfluenza Virus 4    
    Parainfluenza viruses are the second most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in younger children, including croup. Also upper respiratory tract illness (a cold and sore throat).

    VI 42    Rhinovirus    
    Main cause of human common cold.

    VI 43    Rotavirus     
    The most common cause of severe diarrhoea among infants and young children. Can occur throughout life: the first usually produces symptoms, but subsequent infections are typically mild or asymptomatic.

    VI 44    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome  Virus / SARS    
    A viral respiratory illness; no known outbreaks since 2004. Seen as a potential biological warfare agent.

    VI 45    Swine Flu Virus / Swine Influenza Virus / H1N1 Virus    
    Transmission of the virus from pigs to humans is not common and does not always lead to human flu.

    VI 46    West Nile Virus     
    Main route of human infection is through the bite of an infected mosquito. Approximately 90% of West Nile Virus infections in humans are without any symptoms. Found in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, west and central Asia, Oceania and North America.

  • Comments

    Viruses are the smallest known type of infective agent. Outside of living cells viruses are inert. They invade living cells, take them over and make copies of themselves. Not susceptible to antibiotics.
