The article reports on the plan of European Union (EU) veterinarians to tighten up bluetongue movement regulations, in an attempt to restrict the spread of the disease to new areas. It states that an EU Commission proposal that would give member states the option to ban imports of non-vaccinated animals from restricted zones is being considered by the group. A 50-day standstill for all animals post-vaccination is also being suggested by the commission to give sufficient time for immunity to build up.
