Hendra virus: managing t he risk in Western AustraliaBy Dr Sue Skirrow , Emergency Animal Disease Preparedness manager

Hendra Virus - managing the risk in Western Australia -

PRESS RELEASE 23 April 2013

Depart of Ag - Please Read and Share :) At a glance:
  • No horses or people in Western Australia have been diagnosed with Hendra virus infection.

  • The likelihood of Hendra virus infection occurring in WA is considered low, because of the low numbers of horses where flying foxes occur, and the relatively low concentrations of flying foxes. There needs to be close contact between flying foxes and horses for transmission of the virus.

  • Flying foxes in northern WA (north of Shark Bay) can carry the Hendra virus.

  • Horses in close contact with flying foxes have some risk of becoming infected with Hendra virus.

  • Horses imported from Queensland or northern New South Wales, or which have had contact with horses from these areas, should be isolated for 20 days and monitored for signs of Hendra virus.

  • People in close contact with infected horses have some risk of contracting Hendra virus.
