MEXICO - Evidence has been found of sub-clinical Newcastle disease (ND) in two commercial poultry flocks in the centre of the country.

The veterinary authority sent two Immediate Notification reports dated 22 November to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).

The first report describes a positive reaction to routine surveillance at a farm at Col. Montoro in the region of Aguascalientes on 26 October. All 850,816 birds were destroyed.

The second report covers another outbreak of sub-clinical disease at a commercial broiler farm at Road Lagos de Moreno-San Luis Potosí in the region of Jalisco, where all 30,000 birds in the flock have been destroyed.

Both reports say that identification of the pathogenic strain of the Newcastle disease virus was made by active epidemiological surveillance and there were no clinical signs of the disease. Both farms have been depopulated and cleaning and disinfection activities have been carried out.
