    Epidemiology
    Source of the outbreak(s) or origin of infection
    • Introduction of new live animals
    Epidemiological comments A farm was detected in Guanajuato within the framework of the permanent National program for active epidemiological surveillance. It initially had 1,400 Rhodes Island Red chickens, before the introduction of 500 white chickens towards the end of the laying phase, supposedly coming from a farm in Jalisco where vaccination is applied. This was verified through serology on 30 sera with two titers of 1:256, four titers of 1:512 and 24 titers of 1:1024. This introduction is considered to be the source of infection of the susceptible birds. Isolation in Querétaro was obtained after the reporting by an authorized laboratory, which provided the official laboratory with the samples. As difficulties were faced during typing of the virus, several diagnostic assays were performed until confirmation. Isolated viruses in Guanajuato and Querétaro presented an IVIP of 2.84 and 2.86, respectively. In both cases, measures to control the epidemic were applied, including quarantine of the premises and killing of the birds. Pre-emptively, a focal zone and a perifocal zone of three and ten kilometers respectively were implemented, where the absence of the disease has been verified. The National veterinary services will keep the epidemiological surveillance going and inform the OIE about any evolution.
