RVF (Rift Valley Fever) contained in Tanzania:

Rift Valley Fever (RVF) has been contained in Tanzania, but it is still affecting the livestock sector as demand for red meat has not been fully restored, says the May 2007 Tanzania Food Security Food Update. This is produced by the Famine Early Warning Systems Network, funded by the US Agency for International development. The report says vaccination and sensitization campaigns are ongoing in all affected areas, and the government has appealed for 8 million vaccine doses. RVF is transmitted by mosquitoes, and affects sheep, cattle, buffaloes, goats, camels, horses, donkeys and humans mainly in Africa. It can cause death within a few hours.
