Correction to: Molecular detection and identification of Culex flavivirus in mosquito species from Jeju, Republic of Korea

The Original Article was published on 19 July 2021

Correction to: Virol J (2021) 18:150 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12985-021-01618-9

Following publication of the original article [1], the authors realised that a few minor but necessary edits were needed to the text. Furthermore, the statement about Funding was inadvertently left out. Authors would like to apologise for the inconvenience and reassure the readers that the correction does not change the results of the study.

In the fifth paragraph of the Discussion, Cx. pipiens has been corrected to Cx. p. pallens, thus the first sentence now correctly reads:

In this study, we collected the mosquito samples and the most predominant mosquito species identified was Cx. p.pallens, which accounted for 77.2% of the total population of 1877 mosquitoes, followed by Aedes albopictus (8.7%), Chinese Anopheles sinensis (4.9%), and finally Culex tritaeniorhynchus (1.6%), a vector of JEV.

In the eighth paragraph, Cx. pipiens complex should be called Cx pipiens species instead, and this has been corrected.

An important statement about Funding should be added:

This research was supported by a grant from the Korea Health Technology R&D Project through the Korea Health Industry Development Institute (KHIDI), funded by the Ministry of Health & Welfare, Republic of Korea (Grant No. HI20C0369).

Authors are grateful to the funders for the support.

The original article has been corrected.
