Abstract Inkoo virus (INKV) and Chatanga virus (CHATV), which are circulating in Finland, are mosquitoborne California serogroup orthobunyaviruses that have a high seroprevalence among humans. Inkoo virus (INKV) and Chatanga virus (CHATV) are 2 members of the California serogroup of orthobunyaviruses that are currently found in Finland. INKV was first isolated from Ochlerotatus communis and O. punctor mosquitoes in 1964 in Finland (1) and has since been found in Sweden, Norway, and Russia (2–4).

CHATV was isolated from mosquitoes collected in Finland in 2007 (13) but is known to have circulated earlier in Russia, where the first characterized isolate was from a mosquito collected in 1987 (14). Patient Samples Serologic Testing Ms. Acknowledgments. VIROLOGY JOURNAL 23/03/17 Mosquito-borne Inkoo virus in northern Sweden - isolation and whole genome sequencing. Study area This study was conducted between June and September 2015, in selected areas of Västerbotten County, northern Sweden, see Fig. 1. Three sites were selected in the Umeå area by the virtue of their close proximity to the inlet of the Gulf of Bothnia and the mouth of Umeå River containing many natural bird habitats.

The geographic coordinates for the three sites (1, 2 and 3) in Umeå were: N 63° 44,925’ E 020° 17,718’; N 63° 45,661’ E 020° 18,458’) and N 63° 45,086’ E 020° 20,764’ respectively. Although the climate is subarctic, the area experiences fairly warm summers, which provide a conducive environment for diverse mosquito species to thrive. A map showing the study areas where mosquitoes were sampled between June and September 2015 in Umeå and Lövånger, Västerbotten County, Sweden Two sites were selected in Lövånger due to a previous outbreak of Ockelbo disease that occurred in 2013 [24].
