An outbreak developed in late 2018 on the Red Sea coast of Eritrea and Sudan that spread to the Arabian Peninsula and was supplemented by cyclones and undetected breeding in the Empty Quarter, causing a further spread to spring breeding areas in the Central and Eastern regions, and summer breeding areas along the Indo-Pakistan border and in the Horn of Africa.
