Abstract : In natural foci of Omsk hemorrhagic fever spontaneous infection of muskrats by virus of Omsk hemorrhagic fever was demonstrated. Infection by Omsk hemorrhagic fever among muskrats has an epizootic character and is accompanied by mass destruction of these animals. Further investigations are necessary in order to elucidate the role of muskrats in the circulation and accumulation of Omsk hemorrhagic fever in nature. (Author)
