Lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV) is a vector-transmitted capripox virus that causes disease in cattle. flies are considered to be important vectors as they are able to transmit viruses from cattle with the typical LSDV skin nodules to naive cattle. No conclusive data are, however, available concerning the role of subclinically or preclinically infected cattle in virus transmission. Therefore, an in vivo transmission study with 13 donors, experimentally inoculated with LSDV, and 13 naïve acceptor bulls was performed whereby flies were fed on either subclinical- or preclinical-infected donor a…
