Horse Confirmed with Lyssavirus
Chief Biosecurity officer Dr Jim Thompson said the horse was euthanased on 11 May after falling ill.
“The site will remain under quarantine while further testing is conducted on the remaining horses.
“ABLV is carried by bats and flying foxes.”
Staff from the Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service Public Health Unit will visit this property to assess the situation and identify any human potentially exposed to this horse.
Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said it is important to remember that human cases of Lyssavirus are incredibly rare.
“There have only been three recorded cases in Australia, all in Queensland, and sadly, all three people passed away,” Dr Young said.
“We do however have a preventative treatment that is effective in any person not displaying symptoms of the virus.
“Warwick and Toowoomba Hospitals will provide a free course of this preventative treatment to anyone who public health staff determine was in close contact with this dead horse resulting in a risk of exposure to the virus. Simply patting a horse would not constitute exposure.”
People who have had a potential exposure to ABLV require an injection of rabies immunoglobulin and a series of four rabies vaccine injections.
Any Darling Downs local who believes they have been in direct contact with, or in close proximity to this horse, can also contact 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) for advice.
