    Coronavirus strain growing threat for horses in Israel - study

    The equine-version of the coronavirus (ECoV) is becoming a growing threat for horses in Israel, a new study by Israeli researchers has found, based on a sample of seroprevalence, the amount of pathogen in a population, as measured in blood serum.

    In the study, which was published in the academic journal Animals, some 58.6% of horses in central Israel were found to be positive with ECoV, while 41 horses (12.3%) also were found to be with anti-ECoV antibodies.

    he study comes as ECoV outbreaks in horses have been reported in the United States, European Union and Japan, in addition to sporadic cases in the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia.

    More significantly, equine coronavirus (ECoV) is a ?-coronavirus that is both pathogenic to humans as well as animals, with traits akin to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) in humans, which was believed to have originated from bats in China. Similar to other ?-coronaviruses, ECoV is also considered to have came from bats, which may have possibly descended from BCoV or a rat coronavirus..

    "C’est très difficile de de pouvoir dire s’il a véritablement muté et à quel point les vaccins qu’on a aujourd’hui sont efficaces ou ne le sont pas du tout." La vaccination reste conseillée, mais la seule solution est le confinement des chevaux et des consignes très strictes dans les écuries.

      in a crisis you have to weigh all your words: when you write this:

      "coronavirus that is both pathogenic to humans as well as animals"

      and that we have the distribution map in a country, that is to say that the inhabitants of this country or those who have gone there should no longer approach a valuable horse, without having provided validated proof of its non risk?

      Crisis communication for one goal or another must stop, solutions are needed ...
