Circovirus reaches British, Dutch and German cattle

It seems that a further disaster has been visited upon us.

The circovirus epidemics ravaging pig herds for the past decade seem to have spread to cattle.

Circovirus - thoroughly underestimated and covered up by Britain's
corrupt government veterinarians.

Germany: cause of blood sweating in calves still obscure
//05 Nov 2009

German researchers investigated 52 calves from 42 farms in Germany, which suffered from a haemorrhagic disease with unknown cause. Similar cases appeared recently in the Netherlands, Scotland, England, and Wales where is spoken of fatal bleeding calf syndrome ...

...Using a broad-spectrum PCR, a circovirus with high similarities to porcine circovirus type 2b (PCV2b), was detected in several of the affected calves.


The distinct cause of the disease still remains unknown. Potentially, the pathogenesis is complex and includes components such as infection, hereditary disposition, and immune- mediated destruction of blood cell precursors.

Further investigations are necessary to clarify the role of PCV2.
