Abstract

A total of 1,715 randomly selected sheep and goat sera from Senegal were tested for antibodies against Rift Valley fever virus using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The results showed that Rift Valley fever is enzootic. The prevalence is highly heterogeneous, depending on the area. Sheep and goats expressed comparable antibody prevalence, suggesting that both are involved equally in the virus cycle.
