Dr. Ivayla Davidova, BFSA: The most Likely Cause of Rinderpest in Bulgaria is illegal Transportation of an Infected Animal from Turkey
Sofia. The most likely cause of ovine rinderpest in Bulgaria and the EU is illegal transportation of an infected animal from Turkey, Dr. Ivayla Davidova, who heads the Official Control Verification department at the Bulgarian Food Safety Agency (BFSA), told a press conference, Focus News Agency reports. “This is not a precedent, as illegal trading occurs most often around religious holidays. It probably happened this way,” she said, adding that it is the main assumption at the moment, but the issue will be further examined.
