S. Korea's FMD Caused by Virus from Viet Nam

21 February 2011

SOUTH KOREA - South Korea's latest foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) virus is closely related to the one found in Viet Nam, a state animal quarantine agency said Thursday.

The highly contagious animal disease, first confirmed on 29 November, has since spread to six provinces and four major cities in the country, forcing the government to cull and bury more than 3.36 million livestock so far.
