Department confirms further case of Equine Infectious Anaemia

The Department of Agriculture and Food has today confirmed two further cases of Equine Infectious Anaemia (EIA), thus bringing to fourteen the total number of cases confirmed to date. In addition, the number of premises now restricted is seventeen and some 480 horses have been restricted.

The two most recent cases are related to earlier cases and were among a small group of horses categorised by the Department as being at 'high risk' for EIA. Consequently, their confirmation comes as no surprise.

All restricted premises and horses are currently subject to a Department of Agriculture and Food surveillance programme.
