RVF is a viral disease which is serious in both animals and humans, and which leads to high rates of mortality. Sheep and goats are among the species affected by the disease. Sheep in particular are susceptible to the virus. Outbreaks occur in sub-Saharan and North Africa . The disease is spread among animals by biting mosquitoes. Humans can become infected through the bite of a mosquito or through contact with the blood or bodily fluids of infected animals.

I like this post:

Here is a strange fact... Enterobiasis is a condition in which pinworms squirm out of your ass at night to lay their eggs in the folds of your anus. In fact, one out of every ten people who read this post is currently infected with Enterobius vermicularis pinworms.

Too Funny
