Here is a list of a few of the viruses that have been discovered in the
veterinary and medical fields during the past 5 years. The list is incomplete
and reflects viruses that I have immediate access to notes on:

Veterinary viruses

  Equine morbillivirus (also infects humans) 1995
  Infectious salmon anaemia virus (not fully characterised) 1995
  Borna disease virus 1992
  Lelystad virus of pigs 1991
  Tula virus of voles (hantavirus) 1994
  Jembrana disease virus of Bali cattle (lentivirus) 1993

Medical viruses

  Four Corners Hantavirus 1993
  Herpesvirus-like sequences in Kaposi's sarcoma 1994
  Flavivirus-like sequences in GB hepatitis 1995
  Hepatitis G virus sequences (possibly similar to GB virus) 1995
