RHD2: Rabbit haemorrhagic disease (I’ll call it R2D2 disease)

https://www.harcourt-brown.co.uk/articles/infectious-disease/rabbit-haemorrhagic-disease
“A variant of the Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV2) has appeared. There are confirmed cases in pet rabbits throughout the UK.

In the UK, definitive diagnosis of RHD is difficult in the live animal. There is no blood test. Diagnosis is usually made after death . Post-mortem signs may or may not show definite signs. Microscopic examination of the liver and other organs will show signs that are highly suggestive.
Confirmation of the diagnosis is RHD or RHD2 is made from PCR testing on the liver

In the UK, prevention of the new variant of RHD (RHDV2) is difficult. The only vaccine that is available (Nobivac Myxo-RHD) offers some protection against RHDV2 but some rabbits are still susceptible to infection. Vaccines against RHDV2 are available in other European countries and can be imported into UK if they are available.

Note: As Jon Rappoport has pointed out so well, if they have to use PCR for an infected animal, its a lie. An infected animal shoud have an abundant quantity which does not need microscopic amplification with the PCR method.

So what is the deal here? Immunise your pet = good = it works. Immunise humans = good = it works! Got it? So get your damn vaccines!
