Vesicular stomatitis in Ecuador

Ecuador has confirmed an outbreak of vesicular stomatitis on a farm in El Cristal, in the region of Pichincha, which affected 15 cows of a herd of 286 cattle. The serotype of the virus has been identified as Indiana but the origin of the disease is unknown. Dr Mino Verdesoto Gustavo of the ministry of agriculture's zoosanitary epidemiological surveillance system, said that flies and a longer winter with persistent rains could be a factor. The government has applied movement controls inside the country, disinfection of infected premises, dipping and spraying, quarantine, control of arthropods and vaccination.
