Here is a exert from the article from The Santa Cruz Sentinel:

Rabbits become infected through contact with mosquitos, fleas, ticks and other infected rabbits. After contact, rabbits show signs of an infection as soon as two to three days and usually don’t survive, Stern said. Symptoms include swollen eyes with some discharge, lethargy, loss of appetite and respiratory distress.
