Kabura Kabura 1952
The strain was isolated from a patient in Zaire (formerly Belgium Congo) between the years 1938-1946 by van Riel (1952). It is stated in this paper that no serological relationships with Congian, European, Indonesian or Australian strains could be found. Van Riel placed the strain in the Hebdomadis serogroup without suggesting a strain name. Wolff and Bohlander (1958) confirmed the separate status of the strain and adopted the serovar name kabura with strain name Kabura.
The strain was submitted to factor analysis by Kmety (1977), who suggested that it should be placed in a subgroup to be named Borincana.
