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

    Schmallenberg virus (SBV) infection has been identified on 176 farms.

    Twelve of the positive cases have been diagnosed in cattle, 164 in sheep, and none to date in other species such as goats, camelids or deer.

    Two new counties are included in the list – Greater London and Warwickshire.

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

    It is likely that domestic midges have transmitted SBV within the affected areas.

    The total number of affected premises in France is 670.



    Présence du virus de Schmallenberg en France

    9 mars 2012

    La présence du virus de Schmallenberg vient d’être confirmée dans 259 nouvelles exploitations.

    Au total ce sont 670 élevages qui sont donc touchés dans 40 départements (01, 02, 03, 08, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 27, 36, 37, 41, 43, 45, 49, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 76, 80, 86, 87, 88, 89).

    Il s’agit essentiellement d’élevages ovins, mais on compte 26 élevages bovins, 8 élevages caprins et 2 élevage ovin/caprin.

    Schmallenberg virus (SBV) infection has been identified on 145 farms. Nine of the positive cases have been diagnosed in cattle, 136 in sheep, and none to date in other species.

    Two new counties have reported disease: Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.


    So far, none of the affected farms have reported importing animals during 2011 from the affected areas in mainland Europe. SBV infection has only been identified in areas at risk of midge incursion from Northern Europe during summer / autumn 2011.

    Re: Schmallenberg virus : new Akabane-like virus in cattle, sheep and goats in Europe

    First visualisation of Schmallenberg virus

    Insel Riems - March 8, 2012. Scientists of the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI) on the Isle of Riems have first succeeded in visualizing the so-called „Schmallenberg virus“.

    The work group for electron microscopy led by Dr. Harald Granzow of the Institute of Infectology of the FLI on the Isle of Riems has visualized the pathogen by high-resolution electron microscopic analyses of infected cells.

    The shape of the virus is similar to that of other bunyaviruses; the virus is visible as a membrane-enveloped particle with a diameter of approx. 100 nanometers (1nm = 1 millionth of a millimeter).

    The membrane envelops the three segments of the genetic information. „This is another important step forward in the understanding of Schmallenberg virus’, explains the President of the FLI, Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Thomas C. Mettenleiter.
