Following an immediate notification received from the Delegate of Thailand to the OIE regarding an outbreak of African horse sickness (AHS) in Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima district, the ‘AHS-free country’ status of Thailand, as recognised by the OIE World Assembly of Delegates in Resolution No. 19 of May 2014, was suspended with effect from 27 March 2020.

According to the standard operating procedure for the suspension of an officially recognised disease status, the country has two years to recover its previously recognised status by complying with the relevant requirements of the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code.
