“…Overall, the seroprevalence of prior DENV infection was high in the study areas. These rates were consistent with previous studies conducted in Nigeria [15,19] with seroprevalence ranging from 32.1 to 67.7% in our study areas or study year. While we acknowledge the limitations of the broad antibody within the genera Flavivirus and Alphavirus, the serological assays used in the current study were based on agent-specific diagnostic antigens derived from dengue and chikungunya viruses.…”

“…IgM was positive in 10.39% (n = 27/260) and IgG in 20.76% (n = 54/260). A similar study in Nigeria and Benin reported 13% and 36.1% of anti-Chikungunya IgG antibodies respectively compared to 20.76% in Ghana [20, 21]. Anti-Chikungunya IgM antibodies of 10.39% in our study may suggest recent infections, notwithstanding, subclinical or possibly apparent that might have been missed and undiagnosed or treated as any common endemic ailment.…”

“…In our previous studies we established the presence of arboviruses capable of causing human diseases and belonging to three of the four virus families already highlighted [12,13,14,15,16]. As our findings suggest, DENV is highly prevalent in Nigeria [13].…”
