Abstract: Virological investigations have been made in Mwanza, Republic of Tanzania, East Africa during from June 1966 to March 1967. During the course, 17, 097 mosquitoes belonging to 16 species and 224 bats belonging to 3 species were collected and processed for arbovirus content. An agent isolated from Culex decens was identified to be a strain of H 336 virus (Table 1, 3, 5, 7, 8). Twelve arboviruses were also isolated from the salivary glands of bats (Talbe 2). Two of 10 strains from Tadarida pumila were identified to be Bukalasa Bat virus (Table 4, 6, 7, 9). Another strains including 2 strains from Tadarida condylura await identification. Seventy-eight sera of human beings residing in Mwanza were examined for HI antibodies against 8 different antigens (3 Group A, 4 Group B and Bunyamwera). The incidence was highest with Chikungunya virus (73%), which was thought to be due to the epidemic of O'nyong-nyong fever in East Africa occurred in 1959. On the other hand, low incidence of Yellow fever antibodies (9%) was also pointed out (Table 10). One hundred and eighty-two materials, chiefly throat swab, were collected from the patients with fever. These materials were processed for virus isolation by using HeLa cells culture and 20 strains of viruses were isolated up to the present. Identification studies of these viruses are being carried out (Table 11, 12). We wish to express our sincere thanks to all staffs of East African Institute for Medical Research, Mwanza for their kindness to accomplishment of our survey, and also express our thanks to Dr. G. W. Kafuko, Dr. M. C. Williams and Dr. B. E. Henderson of East African Virus Research Institute, Entebbe, Uganda for their kind help of identification studies of isolated arboviruses. And also, we wish to acknowlege the kind identification of bats by Dr. F. A. Mutere, Makerere University College, Kampala, Uganda.
