Epidemiological study of outbreak of rift valley fever during oct. nov. 1977 among military personnel

, : Epidemiological study of outbreak of rift valley fever during oct. nov. 1977 among military personnel. Revue Internationale des Services de Sante des Armees de Terre de Mer et de l'Air 54(3): 199-204

Late in 1977, an outbreak of Rift Valley fever affected 2 areas in Egypt. Two communities were involved: one civilian and one military. The main characteristics that influence the epidemiological situation are described and the control measures taken by the Armed Forces Medical Services Headquarters are emphasized. On the basis of the collected epidemiological data, the specific virus isolated was determined to be the Rift Valley fever virus. Effective ground application of insecticides is sufficient as a general mosquito control measure. Aerial spraying is necessary in case of outbreak extension to areas not accessible by roads and should be combined with ground application but not replace it. National short-term and long-term programs are proposed.
