    Epidemiological comments A dead wild rabbit tested as part of rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD) monitoring was found to be positive for rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus 2 (RHDV2). This is the first case of RHDV2 detected in New Zealand. The Czech strain of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus 1 has been present in New Zealand since 1997. The Korean or K5 variant of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus 1 (RHDV1-K5) was released as a biological control agent in New Zealand in March 2018 (refer to OIE immediate notification dated 04/04/2018).
