The prevalence of antibody to Getah virus was serologically followed among those horses in Korea. Blood samples were taken from 575 horses in February and 462 horses in September, 1985. Overall percentage of horses with seropositive to Getah virus was 37% in February and 47% in September. The data suggest that the Getah virus infection is endemic in Korea and the increase in prevalence may be associated with the seasonal activity of arthropod vectors. This entails preventive precautions of the horses against this viral infection before the entry into Korea.
