Biosecurity Queensland is managing a new Hendra virus case in the Tablelands area after a positive test result was received late last night. Queensland Chief Veterinary Officer Dr Rick Symons said one horse had died on the property after becoming unwell over the weekend. “Biosecurity Queensland is in the process of quarantining the property. There are other horses on the property and we will be working to determine what contact the infected horse had with these other animals,” Dr Symons said.
“Testing and monitoring will then be undertaken over the next month. “While under quarantine, restrictions will apply to moving horses and horse materials on and off the infected property.”
