In spite of the eradication of Aujeszky's disease in Denmark a single outbreak was recorded in December 1988 and another severe epizootic took place during the winter and spring of 1989/90. The epizootic occurred in nearly the same areas as the preceding epizootic during the winter of 1987/88. Identification of the strains of virus involved eliminated the possibility that the latest epizootic was due to the persistence of virus in the pig population. Furthermore, as during the preceding epizootic, initial recordings of the new strains were found to coincide with periods with southerly winds. It was concluded from circumstantial evidence that the concurrent introductions of virus to several farms played a major role during the epizootic.
