FMD Samples in Bulgaria's Yambol District Negative
Bulgaria's Food Safety Agency has not confirmed new cases with foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) in the district of Yambol, as was previously feared.
Signs of the disease were established Monday during regular checks of about 15 cattle. Blood samples have been taken and sent to the National Diagnostic Veterinary Research Institute.
The Food Safety Agency has announced that the results from the samples were negative. However, on Wednesday, a second round of tests will be conducted, in order to confirm the final results.
At this point, the Bulgarian authorities have taken restrictive measures and are analyzing data for other diseases, similar to FMD.
In January, Bulgaria tackled outbreaks of FMD in three villages in the very Southeast as domestic animals were infected by a wild boar that crossed in from Turkey.
Last week, Bulgarian authorities said they eliminated the FMD threat, but a number of restrictions remain in place such as no hunting in a large swath of territory.
