Summary Report for Third Quarter 2018

This article provides a summary of international infectious disease outbreaks reported during the third quarter 2018. For further details, please see the supplied supplementary documents.

The data presented in this report must be interpreted with caution, as there is likely to be some bias in the way that samples are submitted for laboratory testing and subsequently reported. Consequently these data do not necessarily reflect true infectious disease frequency within the international equine population. A country with no reported outbreaks of disease does not necessarily equate to the disease not being present in that country.
