AHS in PE

The suspected African Horse Sickness case in the Port Elizabeth area has been confirmed at a laboratory, according to the State Vet in the area.

The strain of AHS involved is Type 2, the same strain that was circulating earlier in 2018. The strain 2 cases earlier this year were all confirmed field strains and not vaccine related, so it is unlikely that this one would be vaccine related.

A 40-day movement restriction into the AHS controlled area of the surrounding 30km radius was implemented immediately the suspect case was reported, and will remain in place for a minimum of 40 days.

Fairview Racecourse is one of the properties within the 30km radius. During this time, movement into the AHS controlled area may only occur via Stop Over Quarantine and any applications for such movement should be directed to move@myhorse.org.za.

Direct movement into the AHS controlled area will be re-considered at the end of the 40 day period, which will be on or around 20 November.
