      Tanzania.The virus was discovered in Garisa Kenya at the end of last
      year.By 12/01/2007 82 people had died of RVF virus and more than 220
      people were inffected and killed hundreds of cattles.In Tanzania the
      RVF virus was discovered in 1979-1980 in MARA,KILIMANJARO and ARUSHA
      rigionals.On 24/01/2007one patient from Terat Arusha Disstric was
      taken to Mount Meru ARUSHA hospital,after three days the report
      showed from doctors said that the first patient was inffected with
      RVF virus.on 31/01/207 another patient was brought to Mount Mru
      Hospitalfrom Makuyuni,Monduli district with the same signs.The
      confirmation of the RVF-virus reported to the Tanzanian ministers of
      Health and social affairs on 01/02/2007 from CDC,in Nairobi Kenya
      where the blood sample were taken for futher examinations.The victim

      our environment:Inffection ways are:Touching the victims'
      blood,Eating meat with RVF virus,by touching fluids of infected
      one's be animals or human.I think the best way to protect this
      disease is by,educatting people on how to change their eating
      habits,to eat more vegetables,fruits,and crops products(MENDENYO CAN
