Britain Tests 2nd Area for Cow Disease

New York Times

Chief Veterinary Officer Debby Reynolds said cows in a second area of the southern England county of Surrey had shown ”mild clinical signs of infections,” announcing that a new 1.8-mile exclusion zone had been set up around a farm previously unlinked to the outbreak.
