      Schmallenberg virus: update Italy

      14 may, 2012

      The "G. Caporale" Institute confirmed the presence of the Schmallenberg virus in midges in Italy:

      The presence of virus was confirmed in the vectors of the genus Culicoides in Italy, Belgium and Denmark: 6 pool (Obsoletus complex) collected from September 6 to 25 November 2011, three holdings in Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia, two pools (respectively C. obsoletus and C. dewulfi ) caught during the months of September and October 2011 in Belgium and Culicoides captured in October in Denmark.

      These results confirm the role of Culicoides in the transmission and spread of the SBV.


      To date animals from 7 herds were found to be positive for the Schmallenberg virus.

      2 cattle and 5 goatholdings.

        18 May – Schmallenberg virus: further update on GB testing results

        There are 258 UK farms reporting SBV: 36 in cattle and 222 in sheep. There are no new reported cases since the 14 May 2012.

        We have adjusted some of the current total numbers for the counties where some premises lie close to a county boundary. This has no bearing on the distribution of infection when it occurred last summer or on our assessment of the risk of incursion of potentially infected midges from Continental Europe. It is a consequence of more detailed ongoing work following up affected premises in order to assess impact.

              Netherlands: Schmallenberg virus confirmed in 344 farms

              Update may 18, 2012

              Number of suspected premises : 1,641

              Number of confirmed premises : 344


              Cattle holdings: 231

              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 dead and/or malformed calves.

              Sheep holdings : 107

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

              Goat holdings : 6

                        28 May – Schmallenberg virus: further update on GB testing results

                        There are 266 UK farms reporting SBV: 44 in cattle and 219 in sheep and 3 premises which reported sheep (earlier in the year) and are now also reporting cattle cases.

                        We have adjusted some of the current total numbers for the counties where some premises lie close to a county boundary.

In France, 206 new infected cattle holdings have been detected since 11 May 2012.</P>The German data on cases in roe deer are noteworthy. It will be interesting to obtain data on SBV and other orthobunyavirus- (e.g. Akabane) related congenital malformations in wildlife from other countries.
                            Antibodies to Akabane virus have been found in the past in, besides large and small domestic ruminants, horses, donkeys, buffalo, deer, camels, and pigs. - Mod.AS]</CVLONGHORNS@AOL.COM>http://www.promedmail.org/?p=2400:1000:4020501424682213:::::

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

                              Netherlands: Schmallenberg virus confirmed in 348 farms

                              Update May 30, 2012

                              Number of suspected premises : 1,654

                              Number of confirmed premises : 348


                              Cattle holdings: 235


                              Testing of cattle-samples from last year revealed positive results of at least 70% . It is not know yet how what % of positive cows had dead and/or malformed calves.

                              Sheep holdings : 107

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

                              Goat holdings : 6

                                Antibodies against Schmallenberg virus detected in cattle in Denmark

                                The National Veterinary Institute has found antibodies against Schmallenberg virus in samples from two cattle in southern Jutland. This is the first infection with this new virus is found in Danish livestock.

                                Two cattle originating from the same herd in southern Jutland have been subjected to Schmallenberg virus that has spread in Europe since the summer of 2011. This is shown in a survey for antibodies made by the National Veterinary Institute.

                                "This is the first finding that livestock in Denmark has been infected with Schmallenberg virus," says Anette B&#248;tner that veterinarian and head of Section for Exotic Viral Diseases at the National Veterinary Institute.

                                The antibodies produced by the immune system, can be traced in the blood for months after an infection with Schmallenberg virus, and the two cattle were probably infected in the autumn by small mosquitoes - midges.

                                In connection with blood samples of bulls for semen export, we test all bulls for Schmallenberg. In this
                                connection we found two bulls younger than 2 years with antibodies. The animals were probably infected
                                at the Bovlund bull station in the South of Jutland in Denmark
                                since they were there in the infectious
                                period from 1 June 2011 to 1 December 2011.
