Rift Valley Fever (RVF), which is a viral zoonosis affecting mainly animals, is resurfacing in Senegal. Indeed, Seneweb has learned from generally well-informed sources that two animals are infected in Saint-Louis where a delegation of technicians from the Ministry of Health and Social Action is currently located to inquire into the situation.
We were also told that a person had been infected with this disease in Fatick.
As a reminder, Rift Valley Fever is a viral disease most often observed in domesticated animals in sub-Saharan Africa, such as cattle, bison, sheep, goats and camels.
But people can get RVF through contact with the blood, body fluids, or tissues of infected animals, or through the bites of infected mosquitoes. Person-to-person spread has not been documented.
Part of the large family of hemorrhagic fevers, it can have the same symptoms as Ebola, according to a specialist contacted by Seneweb.
