Europe: epizootic haemorrhagic disease (EHD)diagnosed in 2022

In Europe for the first time in 2022 epizootic haemorrhagic disease (EHD) was diagnosed. That was in Spain, on Sicily and on Sardinia. EHD is caused by an orbivirus, which attacks the lining of small blood vessels, causing edema, bleeding and wounds. The virus is transmitted by biting insects of the type Culicoides (midges).
