The viraemic period of African horsesickness is significantly longer in experimentally infected zebra
than in horses. The virus could be isolated 40 d post-infection from blood and 48 d post-infection from
spleen. The introduction of zebra into African horsesickness-free countries should therefore be considered
carefully, and preferably be restricted to serologically negative zebra.
