Surveillance of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)

Since the fall of 2016, SVA has a surveillance of suspected cases of CWD in wild cervids found dead or with signs of neurologic disease. During 2018 – 2021, a EU-regulated surveillance was done, with intensified sampling of wild cervids as well as semi-domesticated reindeer.

In the moose hunting season of 2017, targeted surveillance was also done from healthy hunter harvested moose in the county of Jämtland.
