Abstract

The species Metarhabditis blumi was diagnosed for the first time in Brazil using a molecular assay. Parasites isolated from two cattle herds from the state of Minas Gerais, southeastern Brazil, were classified as M. blumi according to their D2/D3 expansion fragments of the 28S rDNA sequence, which had a high degree of homology (100% similarity) with a M. blumi sequence deposited in GenBank (EU195965.1). The phylogenetic tree comparison also confirmed grouping of the populations evaluated in the current study as M. blumi.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
