Bulgaria Uncovers 3rd FMD Flare in Poor Strandzha Region

Date: 31.01.2011

14 foot-and-mouth disease infected animals have been confirmed in the southeastern Bulgarian village of Gramatikovo, confirmed veterinary authorities.

This is the third flare of FMD in the southeastern Strandzha Mountains region for January, after the disease was discovered in the villages of Kosti and Rezovo.

About 1 100 blood samples of animals from the region have been tested, out of which only the 13 announced Monday were found to be positive.

All animals susceptible to FMD in the village of Gramatikovo will have to be killed, which amounts to 1 cow, 38 sheep and 111 goats.

The movement of animals through Gramatikovo has been completely forbidden; there are also limitations on the movement of persons.

Owners will be remedied in accordance with Bulgarian and EU legislation.

The sparsely populated Strandzha is not a major producer of meat in Bulgaria. Residents fare on livestock breeding and tourism.
