Some cases of atypical scrapie (Nor98) are detected every year, but the last case of classical scrapie was diagnosed in 2009.


The aim of the surveillance programme is to document the occurrence of scrapie in Norway.



In 2020, 17,809 sheep and 593 goats were examined for prion protein scrapie. Twelve sheep from twelve flocks were positive for scrapie Nor98. All the goats were negative for prion protein scrapie.
