Mosquitoes in the Aedes genus have been considered as the reservoir, as well as vectors, since their transovarially infected eggs with stand desiccation and larvae hatch when in contact with water.

PLOS 27/09/11 The 2007 Rift Valley Fever Outbreak in Sudan. Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a neglected, emerging, mosquito-borne disease with severe negative impact on human and animal health and economy.
RVF is caused by RVF virus (RVFV) affecting humans and a wide range of animals. The virus is transmitted through bites from mosquitoes and exposure to viremic blood, body fluids, or tissues of infected animals. During 2007 a large RVF outbreak occurred in Sudan with a total of 747 confirmed human cases including 230 deaths (case fatality 30.8%); although it has been estimated 75,000 were infected. It was most severe in White Nile, El Gezira, and Sennar states near to the White Nile and the Blue Nile Rivers. Notably, RVF was not demonstrated in livestock until after the human cases appeared and unfortunately, there are no records or reports of the number of affected animals or deaths.

September 2008, Vol. 3, No. 5, Pages 411-417 , DOI 10.2217/17460718.104.22.1681 † Author for correspondence Teams composed of local and international public health and veterinary officials and scientists were dispatched to various locations in Kenya and Tanzania to investigate the outbreak, identify risk factors, define principle mosquito vectors, provide clinical care and infection control, study the clinical syndrome and its sequelae, establish surveillance in livestock and wildlife, and assess economic impact.
Health communication teams developed messages and disseminated them locally and nationally. For the 2006–2007 East African RVF outbreak to have occurred in humans, we postulate that a number of factors needed to coexist: Since 1998, the WHO has promoted a strategy of Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) to detect and respond to human outbreaks.
