Sudanese turning vegetarian

100 Sudanese people have died from Rift Valley Fever (with some 360 more infected) in the recent RVF outbreak. The Ministry of Health's epidemiologist announced infection might be caused by eating uncooked meat, being close to infected animals, or drinking unpasteurized milk. (I thought mosquitoes usually transmitted it to humans, but I guess other animals can be hosts too and can be vectors as well?) Either way, people have started eating significantly less meat as a result of this outbreak.
