Hendra strikes again - 2 new cases in Queensland
There have been reports of 2 new cases of Hendra virus in Queensland.
The areas are Rockhampton and near to Ingham.
Positive tests were confirmed last night.
One horse died on the Rockhampton property on Saturday, there are therefore concerns that other horses may have been affected. Tests will be carried out to assess whether the virus has been passed on.
The concern is also for any people who have been in close contact with the infected horses.
