FMD found in China's Tibetan cattle herd
 

 

Cattle in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region were detected with foot-and-mouth disease, the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) said Monday (Oct 10).

 

The virus was detected in seven cattle in the Nyingchi area in Tibet on September 30, the MOA said. Test results on Sunday revealed that the cattle were carrying the O-type virus.

 

All infected cattle and another 132 raised together have been killed and properly disposed of, the MOA said, adding that the epidemic has been effectively contained.
