New FAM outbreak in south Brazil


Brazilian authorities confirmed Thursday a new outbreak of the highly contagious foot and mouth disease in the state of Matto Grosso do Sul, close to the Paraguayan border.

A similar outbreak last October forced the termination of thousands of cattle in the region.

“The new case was identified on a ranch in the municipality of Japora during routine checks carried out by the official veterinary service” the Brazilian Agriculture Ministry reported in a release.
