Netherlands: national zoonosis research facility opens in Lelystad

This animal facility, at the Central Veterinary Institute (CVI) in Lelystad, part of Wageningen UR, is an exceptionally high-level security facility.

Friday 20 February 2015 (3 years ago)

The national facility for diseases that can be transmitted to humans from animals (zoonoses) was officially opened by Sharon Dijksma, Dutch Minister for Agriculture. This animal facility, at the Central Veterinary Institute (CVI) in Lelystad, part of Wageningen UR, is an exceptionally high-level security facility.

The new animal facility makes it possible to conduct research into zoonotic infectious diseases caused by bacteria and viruses such as Q fever, avian flu and Rift Valley Fever. The new facility is secured to ensure maximum protection for the outside world against the possible escape of bacteria and viruses. CVI employees are also well-protected against the pathogens.

The Netherlands is the second largest exporter of agricultural products in the world. An early response to the potential risk of animal disease outbreaks is therefore of great economic and social importance.
