Resumen

Epizootic performance of domesticated pigeon's paramixovirus was studied and evaluated due to its potential risk for aviculture. A census to collect data on pigeon population, hygiene, and management was carried out by the Institute of Veterinary Medicine in Camagüey, Cuba. Data were processed by the chi-square test. Paramixovirus presence in Camagüey municipality and the high risk of its spread to other zones within the province due to violation of antiepizootic measures was confirmed.
