An outbreak of Venezuelan equine encephalitis in towns of Estado Bolívar, in southeastern Venezuela, was investigated. VEE virus could be isolated from patients, sentinel baby mice exposed in houses with patients, and baby mice exposed to a mixed lot of 35 and collected in houses with patients. Laboratory-reared but not transmitted VEE virus to baby mice after feeding on the senior author, who contracted VEE during this investigation in the laboratory. Similarly, but not transmitted readily VEE virus from baby mice to baby mice. It is assumed that could play a role in the transmission of VEE virus in urban areas.
