Zoonotic G8P rotavirus strain in human
What is it about?
We have identified a zoonotic rotavirus group A strain in a child with diarrhhea. According to the whole genome analysis, the rotavirus strain with genome genotype constellation G8-P-I2-R2-C2-M2-A3-N2-T6-E2-H3 resembled bovine-like rotavirus genetic characteristics.
Why is it important?
This finding provide additional information on rotavirus zoonotic transmission and genetic diversity.
