Airborne viruses and their relation to dust storms, as a possible route for dispersion, has not been widely investigated. There are, however, studies that have described airborne dispersal of pathogenic viruses and their potential impact on public and agronomical health. Atmospheric samples were collected in an urban area of Tenerife during 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013; and screened for the presence of enteric viruses using PCR and sequencing. The potential relationship of viral data with African dust storms and other climatic variables (seasonality, origin of the air mass and PM levels) was analyzed. Enteroviruses and Rotaviruses were detected in 15.4% (20/130) and 36.9% (48/130) of the samples, respectively. No significant statistical relationships were observed with African dust storms or the origin of the air masses, although higher percentages of positives were obtained for dust days. Enterovirus detection was significantly linked to warmer seasons and PM2.5 levels showed an inverse correlation to Rotavirus presence. This is the first multi-year report to describe the presence of Enterovirus and Rotavirus genetic sequences in air samples collected in an outdoor urban environment. The data illustrates the need for source region sampling to determine links and the influence of weather, climatic and regional wind patterns on long-range atmospheric dispersion of viruses in future research efforts.
