First Case of Schmallenberg Virus Confirmed in Cattle in Ireland

Schmallenberg virus was confirmed in a bovine fetus in County Cork, the first time the disease has been identified in Ireland, the Agriculture Ministry said.

The virus is not a danger to humans or food safety, the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine said in a statement on its website dated yesterday. The disease can cause stillbirths or malformed young when infected animals give birth. Ireland has been carrying out surveillance measures for the virus since February.

More than 6,000 outbreaks of the disease have been found to date in 10 countries across Europe, according to the statement.
