This article, published in Emerging Infectious Diseases, summarizes the findings of an epidemiologic survey of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus prevalence in high-altitude regions of Tibet, China. Researchers used standard assays to test mosquitoes, pigs, and humans, and confirmed that JE virus has spread to these areas of Tibet. The authors encourage further surveillance and disease prevention and control strategies to limit further spread of the virus.
