  • Kenya - Serological evidence of Zika Flavivirus circulation in human populations in Northern Kenya: an assessment of disease risk 2016–2017

    Conclusion

    Evidence of neutralizing antibodies to West Nile and Zika viruses indicates that they have been circulating undetected in human populations in these areas. While the observed Yellow Fever prevalence in Turkana and West Pokot Counties may imply virus activity, we speculate that this could also be as a result of vaccination following the Yellow Fever outbreak in the Omo river valley, South Sudan and Uganda across the border.
