Seventh Equine EEE Case in Michigan

Michigan reported its seventh case of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) for 2017.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development received confirmation of an additional case of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in an unvaccinated, 3-year-old Quarter Horse in Menominee County. No quarantines were placed. 

This case brings the total number of reported cases of EEE in Michigan for 2017 to seven: two from Marquette County, two from Clare County, one from Menominee County, one from Roscommon County, and one from Wexford County.

The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) works to protect horses and the horse industry from the threat of infectious diseases in North America. The communication system is designed to seek and report real time information about disease outbreaks similar to how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerts the human population about diseases in people.
