Webinar: Feline Infectious Peritonitis: From the FCoV to FCoV23, The Cyprus Case or A New Perspective in the Way We See Coronaviruses.

Since January 2023 an outbreak of feline coronavirus (FCoV) is ongoing on the island of Cyprus, causing a 40-fold increase in PCR-confirmed cases of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) in the first 8 months of 2023, compared to the total in 2022.
