Conference in 4th Zoonotic Disease Symposium

September 6th, 2013

Sanchez-Vizcaino JM.

A number of notifiable animal diseases have recently affected the European Union (EU) countries. Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Classic Swine Fever, different Bluetongue Virus serotypes, West Nile, Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, and more recently, Schmallenberg Virus, are just a few examples. Some of these diseases were diagnosed after they had been circulating around for several months with no one suspecting them. In contrast with that, the laboratory diagnosis was done extremely Fast (within 4 to 12 hours) once the samples were submitted and available for testing. Moreover, since 2007, African Swine Fever Virus has been spreading in the countries of Caucasia and the Russian Federation, posing a significant animal health risk to the EU countries
