Abstract

Several strategies for eradicating Pseudorabies virus (Aujeszky's disease) in Chiang‐Mai and Lampoon Provinces, Thailand, were compared using a computer simulation model, the North American Animal Disease Spread Model (NAADSM). The duration of the outbreak, the number of affected herds and the number of destroyed herds were compared during these simulated outbreaks. Depopulation, zoning for restricted movement and improved detection and vaccination strategies were assessed. The most effective strategies to eradicate Pseudorabies as per the findings from this study are applying depopulation strategies with MOVEMENT RESTRICTIONS in 3‐, 8‐ and 16‐km ZONES surrounding infected herds and enhancing the eradication with vaccination campaign on 16‐km radius surrounding infected herds.
