sentinel site-enhanced near-real time surveillance documenting west nile virus circulation in two culex mosquito species indicating different transmission characteristics, djibouti city, djibouti.the horn of africa represents a region formerly known to be highly susceptible to mosquito-borne infectious diseases. in order to investigate whether autochthonous wnv transmission occurs in the djibouti city area, in how far, and which of, the endemic culex mosquito species are involved in wnv circulation activity,and whether sentinel site-enhanced near-real time surveillance (sse-nrts) may increase wnv detection sensitivity, mosquito vector monitoring was conducted from january 2010 to june 20 ...201223214223
