* Note all suspected cases reported to the AHS Trust are submitted to the local State Veterinary Office and are only ever regarded as “unofficial”. However, the AHS Trust aims to provide an early warning system to assist the equine industry in protecting their horses. Equally, this assists in controlling movement into South Africa’s export zone in the AHS Controlled Area in the Western Cape.
