Bovine ephemeral fever is an economically important arboviral disease that affects cattle and water buffalo, and is widespread in tropical and semitropical areas of the Eastern Hemisphere. In most cases, the main impact is on productivity. While the illness is usually brief, it can result in decreased milk yield, loss of condition and reproductive losses, and recovery can be prolonged in some animals. Mortality is typically low (1-2%); however, significantly higher case fatality rates were reported in some recent outbreaks.
