Hendra Virus near Beaudesert
« on: June 29, 2011, 01:07:09 PM »
Not really forum related but forewarned is forearmed.
Bio Security Qld has just released the following.
Hendra virus near Beaudesert

A positive case of Hendra virus has been confirmed at Kerry, near Beaudesert. Biosecurity Queensland is managing the case after test results on a deceased horse came back positive for the virus.

On Saturday a private vet attended a sick horse on a property which was moved to a nearby second property where it died on Sunday. Biosecurity Queensland began implementing control procedures after blood samples taken from the horse came back positive last night.

Other horses on the properties are currently being quarantined and Biosecurity Queensland staff are on site today to provide residents in the area with the latest information about Hendra virus.

At this stage it is not clear whether any human is at risk. Doctors from Queensland Health's Gold Coast Public Health Unit will offer any testing or treatment to people as required.

This is the 15th known incident of Hendra virus since it was first detected in 1994.

Cheers
Ray


fishing ethics are the things that we do when we are unobserved by others!!

Ray this property is literally a stones throw from where my cattle are so its a bit of a worry for the stock horses and the farmer i work with.


Thanks for broadcasting it a bit more, its a bit frightening.

It would be a very worrying time for the horses owner and people who came in contact until they get the test results back.
I would hope that the vet took appropriate precautions during the first examination.
 Cheers
