Are you wanting to know about Equine Influenza itself or the outbreak in Australia?

www.dpi.gov.au should give you lots of info about lockdown/restricted zones etc here in brisbane its crazy. EI everywhere you turn. Fortunately we are in a bubble at the moment and have qualified for the free vaccinations and micro chipping which we get done on tuesday. Things are getting slowly better though. We now have the amber zone as lane mentioned which means people in that area are allowed to leave their property if riding or walking their horse but still need a permit to float a horse or take a horse into a red or green zone. Im still miles from the amber zone :(

there main thing I have heard about is a jockey/trainer/someone from japan (??) came over here either with a horse or without but was associated with horses when he got here and passed the flu on that way. Just after this happened there was a 3DE up here in warwick and horses from NSW came up here for that before it was known about and spread the flu while here.

I know its hard to police everything at customs but I think there needs to be tougher rules when people enter the country who have anything to do with something we don't have here. Makes sense really

It was also because of vets in the quarantine centre not following strict protocol in regards to decontamination, that is how it got out of quarantine.
