Bluetongue reaches Denmark

Denmark has confirmed its first outbreak of bluetongue, as the virus continues to spread in northern Europe. The outbreak occurred in a flock of 250 sheep and lambs near Sakskobing in the south of the country. According to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, only one animal showed clinical signs of disease. It died less than 48 hours after developing symptoms, and the rest of the herd has been put under restrictions. Samples have been sent to the European reference laboratory for bluetongue in Pirbright, UK, to establish which strain of the virus was responsible for the outbreak.
