Rift Valley fever (RVF) is an important transboundary zoonotic viral disease that is endemic in Africa. Besides previous reports, the World Health Organization received reports of human deaths and abortions in RVF-affected animals in some parts of Africa in 2016. Human RVF cases in China (2016) and later in France in 2019 suggest alertness towards this viral disease, in adjoining countries. In this article, we briefly present the vital information on this disease, which will help the country for emergency preparedness to face the potential threat from RVF.
