Full-length genome sequence of a dengue serotype 1 virus isolate from a traveler returning from Democratic Republic of Congo to Italy, July 2019

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report the full-genome sequence of a Dengue serotype-1 virus (DENV-1) isolated from a traveler returning in July 2019 to Italy from Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which is currently affected by Ebola and measles outbreaks. The sequence shows high similarity with two 2013 strains isolated in Angola and China.
