Abstract

The effects of three temperatures [30, 50, and 80 F (-1.11, 10, and 26.67 C)] and three relative humidities (30, 50, and 80%) on biological and physical decay rates of aerosols of yellow fever virus were investigated. Neither temperature nor relative humidity, independently or jointly, significantly affected biological or physical decay rates. The advantages of assaying yellow fever virus by the fluorescent-cell counting technique are discussed.
