ABSTRACT
The article reports on the need for the British Veterinary Association (BVA) and the specialist division to conduct a careful risk assessment on livestock to be able to prevent the importation of bluetongue virus (BTV) in Great Britain. The Bluetongue Expert Group has revealed that importation is one of the major cause on the re-entry of BTV over the windborne incursion. Nicky Paul, the former president of BVA, suggests the importance to continue vaccination to secure the spread of BTV.
