Most cases of Hendra virus infection have occurred in Queensland, with one case in a horse in NSW. Hendra virus infection has a high mortality rate in horses and humans and as cases could occur anywhere in Australia it is important to be ready for prompt action should an outbreak occur in NSW. This paper: reviews the current knowledge on Hendra virus infection including methods for preventing the disease; explains the animal health and human health response for an outbreak within NSW; and discusses possible future avenues for post-exposure prophylaxis and prevention by vaccination.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||New South Wales Public Health Bulletin, 22(6), p. 118-122||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1034-7674
