Facts about Rift Valley fever
Rift Valley fever is an acute viral febrile haemorrhagic disease that affects primarily ruminants in Africa and in the Arabian Peninsula: cattle, buffalo, sheep, goats and camels. Humans may become infected by mosquito bites and through direct or indirect contact with the blood or organs of infected animals.
Prevention and control measures for Rift Valley fever
Vaccination of ruminants is the favoured method of preventing human disease. The inactivated RVF vaccine provides a lower level of protection. Other measures include a ban on slaughtering ruminants and avoiding mosquito bites.
