New cases of FMD detected at 67 sites
Riyadh, 4th Apr 2001

   Saudi Arabia, the biggest importer of cattle in the Gulf region, yesterday reported more foot-and-mouth disease cases, bringing the total number of afflicted animals to more than 3,000.

The cases were discovered at 67 sites in different parts of the Kingdom. New cases have been reported in Riyadh, Northern Border, Qassim, Madinah, Eastern Province, Makkah and Hail.

“The total number of infected animals reached 3,618, including 2,933 cows and 685 sheep and goats,” the department of animal resources at the ministry said in its weekly update on the disease. It added that 326 heads, including 156 cows and 170 sheep and goats died of the disease.

The statement said veterinary teams were being sent to infected and suspected sites on a daily basis.

The department said follow-up reports indicated that the situation was stable and under control in 80 percent of the disease-hit areas where no new cases have been found.
