Tularemia also in Luxembourg ?

In Germany, tularemia is still spreading. This infectious disease can also be transmitted to humans. Are there any cases of sick animals in Luxembourg at the moment? Where are the risks and for whom? Are hunters and farmers informed about the situation? What measures are in place to prevent a spread in the Grand Duchy? Deputies Claude Lamberty and Max Hahn have asked the ministry about the matter.

„Aus ëmmer méi Deeler vu Nordrhein-Westfalen an och aus dem Bundesland Bayern kënnt dëser Deeg d’Noriicht, dass sech d’Huesepescht, och Tularämie genannt, an deene Regiounen ëmmer weider verbreet. Dës héichustiechend Infektiounskrankheet verursaacht bei Huesen, Kanéngercher an anere Nagedéieren, dass si vill ofmoeren, apathesch ginn an torkelen – et kënnt zu enger Aart Bluttvergëftung an d’Déiere verenden no kuerzer Zäit.

Am direkte Kontakt mam Déier oder och mat den Exkrementer vun dësen Déieren ass dës Krankheet och op de Mënsch iwwerdrobar. D’Symptomer beim Mënsch sinn änlech wéi bei enger Gripp; Kappwéi, héich Féiwer oder och en Houscht, a si musse mat Medikamenter behandelt ginn.  

De Noriichten aus dem Ausland no soll et an de leschte Joren ëmmer erëm zu Infektioune bei Mënsche komm sinn. Besonnesch oppasse soll ee bei Hënn oder Kazen, déi d’Krankheet un de Mënsch kënne weiderginn, an och Insekte kéinten se direkt op de Mënsch iwwerdroen. 2019 hätten sech esou an Däitschland 72 Leit mat dëser Krankheet infizéiert.

An deem Kontext wollte mir dem Här Minister fir Landwirtschaft, Wäibau a ländlech Entwécklung folgend Froe stellen:

  • Sinn den Ament Fäll vun Tularämie hei zu Lëtzebuerg bekannt?
  • Wa jo, wou sinn dës Déiere fonnt ginn?
  • Den Här Minister sot 2020 a senger Äntwert op eng mëndlech Fro et géing een am Saarland nofroen, wéi wäit den Impfstoff fir dës Krankheet developpéiert wier. Konnt den Här Minister hei weider Detailer erausfannen a wat fir eng?
  • Sinn d’Baueren an d’Jeeër op déi momentan Situatioun opmierksam gemaach ginn?
  • Bestinn Preventiounsmoossname fir eng Verbreedung hei am Land ze evitéieren? Falls jo, wat fir eng?
  • Bestinn Risiken fir aner Déieren déi fräi um Feld gehale sinn, an eventuell mat kranken Déieren a Kontakt kéinte kommen?
  • Bestinn Risiken fir Veterinären oder aner Beruffsgruppen sou wéi beispillsweis an der Restauratioun?
  • Wéi sollen d’Leit virgoen, am Fall wou si ee krankt oder doudegt Déier an der Natur géife fannen?“
