surveillance of bat coronaviruses in kenya identifies relatives of human coronaviruses nl63 and 229e and their recombination history.bats harbor a large diversity of coronaviruses (covs), several of which are related to zoonotic pathogens that cause severe disease in humans. our screening of bat samples collected in kenya from 2007 to 2010 not only detected rna from several novel covs but, more significantly, identified sequences that were closely related to human covs nl63 and 229e, suggesting that these two human viruses originate from bats. we also demonstrated that human cov nl63 is a recombinant between nl63-like viruses ...201728077633
bat astrovirus in mozambique.astroviruses (astvs) are responsible for infection of a large diversity of mammalian and avian species, including bats, aquatic birds, livestock and humans. we investigated astvs circulation in bats in mozambique and mayotte, a small island in the comoros archipelago located between east africa and madagascar. biological material was collected from 338 bats and tested for the presence of the astv rna-dependent rna-polymerase gene with a pan-astv semi-nested polymerase chain reaction assay. none ...201829925396
