Abstract
The mechanism of transmission and maintenance in nature of the "arbor" (arthropod-borne) viruses have in the last year continued to be the main interest of the Institute. Investigations have concerned many aspects of this main problem. The accession of a clinical worker to the staff has allowed the beginning of a systematic programme to identify the viruses importantly concerned in the causation of fever in man in Uganda. No isolations have yet been made in the Entebbe area or from a small epidemic reported from Tanganyika but preparations for the isolation of virus have borne fruit since the end of the year, and several strains of influenza virus await typing. However, no viruses likely to be arthropodborne have yet been isolated.
