Report on 2010 FMD Outbreaks

CattleNetwork picked up this AP article on the 2010 outbreaks in Japan and South Korea. Interestingly, the AP reports that “Since then, infections have spread to more than 110 facilities in Miyazaki, according to the prefectural government. Some 85,000 cows and pigs will be killed as a result.”  In all likelihood, most of these other farms were infected prior to detection of the index case.
