Abstract

Ross River virus is most often considered a disease of rural Australia. However, an outbreak of RRV infection identified among people living in the north-western outskirts of Sydney, and outbreaks in Brisbane, Perth and south-western Australia, reveal the potential for RRV activity to spread to metropolitan areas.
