At the end of February and throughout the month of March, multiple cases of infection with Equine Herpesvirus type 1 (Equine herpesvirus 1, EHV-1) were confirmed in Spain and several European countries in horses that had participated in show jumping competitions in Spain and Portugal. EHV-1 infection is endemic in most horse populations throughout the world, causing severe economic losses associated with outbreaks of respiratory disease, miscarriages, neonatal deaths, and myeloencephalopathies.
