RESUMO

Hantavirus is an emerging zoonotic virus with potential for significant human disease and mortality. Rodents are the natural reservoir for the virus. This study reports the seroprevalence of hantavirus in brown rats (Rattus norvigicus) in Grenada. Serum samples from 198 brown rats were tested for the immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody to hantavirus using an enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay (ELISA). A seroprevalence rate of 29.3% was found. This is the first report of hantavirus exposure in any species on the island of Grenada and documents the brown rat as a reservoir host on the island.
