Pigs infected with H1N1 in Taiwan

The first outbreak of pandemic H1N1 in Taiwanese pigs has been reported this week by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). The virus was detected in 160 piglets on a 3,300-pig farm in Guanshan last month. The animals have since recovered, says the organization. According to the OIE, Taiwan has had an H1N1 influenza virus surveillance program since January 2009. Following the confirmation of the outbreak, one pig farm within 1 km of the index farm is being monitored, and no clinical or epidemiological evidence of infection has been found. Seven pig farms within 3 km are also being closely watched.
