Abstract

By 1977, Rift Valley Fever (RVF) has covered most of the African continent, and reached the Mediterranean basin. The recent notification that Zinga virus (hitherto ungrouped arbovirus) is antigenically identical to RVF (RVFV) expands the RVF-covered Africa to include West Africa and Madagascar.
