Abstract

Abstract.

Coues rice rat (), a species abundant throughout Central America, was evaluated experimentally for the ability to serve as an amplifying host for three arboviruses: Patois (), Nepuyo (), and Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus subtype ID (). These three viruses have similar ecologies and are known to co-circulate in nature. Animals from all three cohorts survived infection and developed viremia with no apparent signs of illness and long-lasting antibodies. Thus, may play a role in the general maintenance of these viruses in nature.
