Abstract

Candotti and colleagues (1) reported the prevalence of a third strain of human erythrovirus, genotype 3 (V9), in the Ghanaian population and, in part, concluded that a genotype 1 (B19)-based assay failed to detect genotype 3 immunoglobulin G (IgG) in 38.5% of Ghanaian samples containing genotype 3 antibodies. We disagree with this conclusion for the following reasons.
