- ... Akabane virus (AKAV) is a member of the Simbu serogroup, classified in the genus Orthobunyavirus, family Bunyaviridae. AKAV infection can cause abortion, stillbirth, and congenital arthrogryposis and hydranencephaly in cattle and sheep. The distribution and prevalence of AKAV infection in China is still unknown. A total of 2731 sera collected from 2006 to 2015 in 24 provinces of China from cattle, ...

- ... Koolpinyah virus (KOOLV) isolated from healthy Australian cattle and Yata virus (YATV) isolated from a pool of Mansonia uniformis mosquitoes in the Central African Republic have been tentatively identified as rhabdoviruses. KOOLV was shown previously to be related antigenically to kotonkon virus, an ephemerovirus that has caused an ephemeral fever-like illness in cattle in Nigeria, but YATV failed ...

- ... Bovine ephemeral fever virus (BEFV) is an economically important vector-borne pathogen of cattle in tropical and sub-tropical regions of Australia, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Although clinical cases of bovine ephemeral fever are usually attributed to BEFV, definitive diagnosis is rarely performed and at least two other related viruses, kotonkon virus (KOTV; an ephemerovirus) and Fukuoka vir ...
