Lai Lai 1966
The strain Lai was isolated from a patient Lai An-hwa (or hua) during an explosive outbreak of leptospirosis in 1958 in the Wenjiang District of Sichuan province of China (Chen Tingzuo et al., 1986). The strain was apparently described by Liu et al. in 1966. Its separate serological status was confirmed by a RL. Because of lack of documentation at the time of the Manchester meeting in 1986 the TSC decided to record the serovar in the Annex to the Revised List (Kmety and Dikken, 1988). Documentation which is now available permits the inclusion of Lai as a separate serovar in the Icterohaemorrhagiae serogroup in the updated attached serovar list.
