Abstract

We sequenced the envelope gene of dengue virus serotype 2 (DENV-2-E) in samples from an outbreak reported in 2018, in Yurimaguas, Peru. The strain belongs to lineage 2 of the American/Asian genotype. We report a variant with two novel mutations (I379T and V484I) located in domain III of DENV2-E.
