Friday 3 February 2012 (6 years 15 days ago)

Five outbreaks have been confirmed so far in Campobasso Province (Molise region). The source of infection has been traced in one holding, which moved animals to the other four. SVD free status of Campobasso province has been withdrawn. All animals have been slaughtered. No further movements (except to slaughterhouse) occurred from the 4 receiving holdings (fattening farms).

All lots moved from the holding origin of infection have been traced and further testings are ongoing. The involved holdings are located in the following provinces: Campobasso and Isernia (Molise), Chieti (Abruzzo), Foggia (Puglia) and Benevento (Campania).

Todate, a possible hypothes for the introduction of infection includes the contamination of truck during animal trade.

Further information will be available when testings will be completed.
