As compared with the virulent Alexander strain, both strains were of low virulence for guinea pigs and white mice but they were of similar virulence for the three species of involved in the plague focus. They were highly virulent for and , but only moderately virulent for in the in this focus may be distinct from that normally found in squirrels and other large rodents.
