Serial serum samples were collected from the staff members of this Institute who had suffered from acute haemorrhagic conjuncitivitis in June and July 1981. The sera were tested for the presence of Enterovirus 70 antibodies. A low antibody titres was detected in majority of the pre-exposure sera, however, their convalescent samples (87.5%) showed a four-fold rise. Sera collected after one and 2 years possessed diminishing antibody titres. This indicated that EV-70 was the aetiological agent during the outbreak.
