      23 March – Schmallenberg virus: further update on GB testing results

      Schmallenberg virus (SBV) infection has been identified on 209 farms.

      Seventeen of the positive cases have been diagnosed in cattle, 192 in sheep, and none to date in other species such as goats, camelids or deer.

      Currently, SBV infection has only been identified in areas predicted to be at risk of midge incursion from Northern Europe during summer / autumn 2011.

      We cannot rule out the possibility that domestic (local) midges may have transmitted SBV within the affected areas. Domestic midges may have been infected after biting a local animal infected last summer after incursion of continental midges.

      Disease has been reported in one new county, Bedfordshire, as well as in Jersey (Channel Islands).

            8 cattle holdings were found to be positive from bloodsamples taken last autumn. These holdings are NOT included in the total number
            Testing of more cattle-samples from last year revealed positive results of 70% . It is not know yet how what % of positive cows had malformed calves.

            Sheep holdings : 103

            Preliminary testresults indicate sheep in affected areas probably are positive for 70% or more.

We cannot rule out the possibility that domestic (local) midges may have transmitted SBV within the affected areas.

                                5 April: Schmallenberg virus further updates on GB testing results

                                There are now 239 UK farms reporting SBV: 25 in cattle and 214 in sheep – this is an increase of only one farm since the last update. These all continue to be within the recognised risk counties in England.

                                As expected there has been a decline in the numbers of reporting farms in the last week. This is in line with all EU Member States where the sheep reports have declined as lambing in “at risk” sheep, (those at a critical time of gestation when infection can impact on the foetus), draws to an end and in line with Defra’s own predictions considering UK farming practices and estimated time of infection occurring in the UK. We continue to expect to see cases in cattle into early summer.
